    Is it wrong and a crime for a Beggar to have some money in her possission. What about the big-wigs who swindle money and are free????

    We should be proud of this begged lady. Just note people hard work pays off. It's not easy to walk for hours, specially in the boiling hot sun. She should be given a job in the finance department as an example for the hundreds of officers who warm the chairs.
