I'm glad I will never understand the mentality of someone who can do that to someone else and still go on with their lives. But I still want to put someone who did something like this in a seat and ask, "Why? How? How do you live with yourself?"

No, you really should read the article. The two above users didn't do you any favors.

For most Westerners, the issue of forced begging was thrust into the spotlight in the 2008 Oscar-winning movie "Slumdog Millionaire," in which a child in Mumbai, India, is intentionally blinded so he could bring in more money in alms.

But the existence and prevalence of "beggar mafias" is an open secret in South Asian countries.

Pity pays.

So, the gangs kidnap and cripple children -- knowing sympathetic passersby are more likely to be touched by, and give to, a limbless child.

Almost half of Bangladesh's 150 million people live on less than a dollar a day. The economy has slowed; poverty is skyrocketing.

And each new day brings a fresh batch of sun-caked boys and girls who tap on car windows to draw attention to their disfigurement -- a desperate way to survive.


somewhere near by there's a corrupt government doing very little, and a probably just about as corrupt business class fending for itself.

"forgetting that this is a pretty good set-up for the origin story of a vengeful superhero who would one day come back to kill them all"


As long as it doesn't involve Brainiac or The Justice League, I'm cool with that.

He's not a hero until he's donned a cool costume, killed those who did it to him, at least several dozen other henchmen, and the main boss and the end credits roll. Until then you can use either sad or scary tag.

It got me going places with nukes and south asians, then I had to walk it back.

Seriously, cultural superiority is the only answer one can come up with for justifying this, as in, the West doesn't treat its poor like this, ever, in any context, at any point in recent history. One has to go back to the darkest days of London to even hope to find something equivalent.

Why do you do it, South Asians? Anyone want to try to answer in a way that doesn't deflect ?

"They tied me up and told me they'd force me to beg," he says. "I told them, 'I know each and every one of you. And I'm going to tell my father.'

Snitches get stitches.

But seriously, never say you are going to tell on someone. Tell later, but don't tell them you will tell.

It has a happy ending. Well, as happy as you could expect from such a tragic story.

Cultural superiority be damned! No society is above this. It happens everywhere.

See, now, if you manage to cut off my penis, you need to really, really, *REALLY* make sure I'm dead. Because otherwise, I'm going to eventually come after you and make you really, really, *REALLY* wish you had finished the job.

I'd like to think that poverty and laziness go hand in hand. They really should've been more diligent and made sure the job was finished.

I know who you are. I know what you want.

If you are looking to buy me off, I can tell you I won't take your money.

What I have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long recuperation. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.

If you kill yourself now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you.

But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will show you exactly what it means to beg.

Part of the problem ? And that's why they work in garment factories.

From what I can tell Asian culture never developed a concept of the inherent worth of an individual. In China an individual is only worth their ability to serve the purposes of their "superiors". If they refuse or are unable to do so they aren't considered human and have no more moral standing than any nuisance animal. In Japan an individual is worth their abilities and expertise. In the subcontinental cultures people are very sensitive to any perceived "slight" and there isn't any idea of "proportional response".

The real problem is poor people have too many kids and bad shiat tends to happen when life is so cheap.

My biggest fear is that he'll start to think, 'I will find the person who did this to me and I will do the same to him.' I don't want this. I don't want to be the father of a terrorist. -- 'Abed,' boy's father

He's a better man than I am.
