73. Begging is her livelihood

There are certain memories which you can never forget.
They might not necessarily part of 'your' life - but in a way they become part of your life. 
More than two and half years ago, when I came out of Lucknow airport in Uttar Pradesh, I saw this woman sitting in the parking area of the airport.

I did not what to say.

Then I knew and even today I know that we need to take collective efforts so that old people in our land do hot have to choose begging as the source of their livelihood.

Can we do it? 
I know it is not easy. 
But I hope we do it!
