  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.

    • Utterly misinterpretation of charity .PL. come once at Vellore CMC and see poor people are being treated at minimal cost.During British or Mogul era as well benefits were enjoyed by common people .Godan is also originated from charity in Hindu regime .It is politics which has cast shadow over it’s great role ,sir.Charity in essence has always played a big role in nation building.

    • Well yoganath not all people are fortunate enough to have even the basic amenities from their birth so its not their fault at all and they don’t Even get the access to the education,motivation,inspiration etc and if we want world to be a better place then we certainly will have to help people in need in our own capacity and commitment we can’t always blame others.

    • U r right bro,but tell me what do with market monopoly?how to bring the concept of consciousness in the masses except elites?what has stagnated the social ,economic development?who are there to pause the rate growth in favour of common people? And last question tell me the cause of laziness?

  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???

    • Yes, agreed, please ask SANTACLAUS (PRIME MINISTER), if you do charity in a certain bracket, we should be entitled to at least a tax benefit, when he is wanting to take away everything – gas subsidy, nd an eye wash of bringing in ACHHE DIN….

  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.

  7. In today’s digital media world everything is judged by the material we have. May it be how big or small bank account,cars,homes,donations etc.
    Yes there has to be balance . You can still be rich (relative) when you have enough to sustain. And don’t associate your well being by how much more or less you possess. Infact richness is that you have objects but you don’t own. You just utilise and dissociation from them.your happiness or worthiness is perceived by your deattachment detangling from things you carry as you believe of you. Ultimately at end nothing is yours that is the truth.
    Realise higher goals of your true nature.
    We are drastically being addicted by digital media and western way ,but in end the outcome is dependency depression etc.
    Our goal is to have long-lasting joy peace and that actions which realiazes this truth that action is truth.

  8. Shahrukh is great example for those who want to earn by smart hard work. It shows everything is possible everywhere. He has crossed the same roads where someone thinks that it’s difficult. Salute to him.
