  1. Why one should give for charity. By doing so lot of lazy people are born. Film actors earn out of their hard work and dedication. One should learn from them. India is poor because of unwanted expectation and lazyness.

    • There are millions of people in India who are well educated but unemployed. There are lakhs and lakhs of disabled, orphans, elderly poor, homeless people who are deprived by the society. The deprived people need charity. All the people who run charity do come from all walks of life and do it just for mankind & having no intention of any greed or expection. For u to say “why to give charity” seems uterly inhuman, insensitive & heartless statement & do feel sorry for you bro.

  2. People who are rich think how to become richer,inspite everyone know they require for Roti Kapada, makan to live .
    It is a question how much money require for an individual?
    If we spend 10% of our income to help needy, that is service , get more happy and get self satisfaction
    It is better everyone develop the habit of service to the needy

    • Hi! Businesses generate employment, which is the best social service. There’s no NGO scanner here!!! What is to be remembered here is that these successful businesses pave way for more interdependent business!!! If successful people sit down with Roti kapda aur makaan, where will the economy go???

  3. We should not blame every rich man on the subject of contribution or donation to the needy people .When anyone gives anything with good heart, he or she becomes a philanthropist. It is up to the individual and good heart will show the interest.

  4. generally, it is observed whenever the richest person donates to needy, the needy becomes lazier. instead of donates their money they have to invest the money in such a way that some needy person get the job.

  5. Actor Shah Rukh Khan has worked hard to achieve whatever he had achieved. Now as an entrepreneur he is generating employment. Award he received along with Cate Blanchet andSirElton John at Davos spoke volumes about his charity work , that hardly I knew . Respect for him has just grown….

  6. It is flawed to define rich and poor on the basis of money in the bank. Therefore any debate based on the wrong premise always to be wrong. Rich are those who are having richness in their mind. They are always having big heart. Huge life energy always flows through them.
