Essay on Poverty For Class 8

609 Words

Poverty is a curse to the mankind. This curse is created by us not by an Alien. The reason of poverty is simple. It is because few groups of people cheated other section of the people in the name of intelligence.

 In another word it can be said that few idle and intelligent people  used their potential of mind to control resources including labour resource. These processes in long run resulted such type of society which has high disparity. Democracy has been overruling humanity for many years thereby boosting opportunities only for cleverer and corrupted people. Poor people failed to achieve the education tag due to financial problem. Therefore they fell into the vicious circle of poverty and remained poor permanently generation after generation.

When people cannot afford the basic needs of life such as food, clothing and shelter then this situation of life is called poverty. It is dreadful for them; who are leaving in poverty.

Causes of Poverty : Today the major problem of many countries is poverty. In India there are many people; who are poor. About 32.7% or about 400 million Indian are living below poverty line (based on 2005's Purchasing Power Parity-PPP). One reason of the poverty is that few sections of the society are not fairly paid for their labour. Also many private corporate are exploiting educated person also by maintaining double book of accounts. These companies are biggest example of corruption. The problem is that we all know this even then this type of corruption persists in our system. Also because there is no equal distribution of available opportunities and resources. Reservation in India is continuing on the basis of cast and communities and not on the basis of financial earning of a family.

Few or upper sections of society are paid more than needed. Middlemen are damaging the economy of equal distribution in our country. The rich people are getting richer and poor are becoming poorer day by day. Due to middlemen poor people are not getting their share properly. Poor men deserve more than what they are getting now in the current chain of economy in which middle men are playing big roles. Due lack of transparency major financial part of national plan and program made for poor is diverted into the account of corrupted people. The national parties are taking its commission directly and indirectly from the poor worker in a government job contract.

Conclusion : If a country wants to rise, it must first uplift the lower section of the society by removing poverty. The government must take certain measures to eradicate it. All the government departments must be connected in full phase to enable online services to the people who are able to take the services on internet. If financial institution and public sectors can be computerised then why not government departments. It will automatically solve maximum problems of the poverty. Government should make scholarship program more transparent for poor. There must be a restriction of unauthorised rich participants by banning them with their yearly parental income. The reservation in government services are also to be based not on religion but on the financial income of the family. The financial certification for individual must be made transparent and corruption free. The financial certification must be issued online on the basis of Aadhar card. Therefore a major program to be taken to give 'Aadhar card' to every citizen. All records to be made online and a computer serviceman to be posted in every village from government side to help the poor. It is the only transparency of the government department that can bring goodness in our system.
