Ans:- Poverty is the state of being poor. There are some people they think that poverty is a curse but it is not always true. Many great people of the world have come from the very poor families. Marie Curie, Abraham Lincoln are the some examples of it. Some people lack material wealth but these people are not poor spiritually and mentally. Poverty depends on one’s own thinking. Poor people believe in simple living and high thinking.
According to some people poverty is the root cause of many social evils such as begging, theft, prostitution, pick pocketing, etc. If a poor man does big crimes in the hope of becoming rich soon, it brings a great disaster to him/her. There are two types of classes in our society: the rich class and the poor class. A poor man is born in poverty and usually dies in poverty. But a poor man leads an honest, a truthful and courageous life. He is bold enough to face the hardships of life.
Our country is poor. Most of the people who live in the villages are very poor. Some of them have very difficulties to have two-time meal in a day. Some poor people also live in cities and towns.
Poverty is the main cause of population growth. It gives rise to beggar problem. This problem can be solved only when poverty is removed. Poor people begin to believe in superstations and they follow traditional belief, and they become conservative. If there is poverty, there is ignorance, and illiteracy. Then the country cannot progress.
We cannot remove poverty in one night. It is a long process. It can be wiped out steps by steps. Educational awareness can remove the poverty.
