Answer: A man who earns his livelihood by begging in a street is called a street beggar. The street beggar is a common sight in Bangladesh. His life is pitiable and deplorable. He is known to all of us. He stands at the roadside and stretches his hand with a shout for a paisa or a note. He is found all around the town or cities. He draws people’s attention through appealing in various ways like shouting, singing and so on. He wears torn and patched dress. Some of them are invalid. He begs from dawn to dusk and returns home with whatever he gets. With this small income, he supports himself and his family. He is never happy as he always depends upon others help and mercy. He at times begs from door to door. So the life of a street beggar is very miserable. We should rehabilitate them in proper places. So that they can lead and live a normal life with a sense of honor. And we should make it possible for the street beggar to take part in economic activities.

Or,

A Street Beggar
