Poverty-An Essay

Poverty is the lack of adequate finances, status and possession of other things which are necessary to live a peaceful life.  It refers to deprived economic and social conditions. This indicates the low income and inability to obtain basic necessities such as food, shelter, clothing, education and healthcare.

There is a term called ‘Cycle of Poverty’. It refers to an event where poverty persists for at least three generations. There are limited or no resources for such families. 

There are five primary factors that are responsible for poverty in a family or in a state, or in a community. The factors include ignorance, disease, apathy, dishonesty and dependency. These factors, in turn, contribute to secondary factors such as poor infrastructure, lack of market, wrong leadership, bad governance,  under-employment, lack of skill, lack of capital and some others. According to an estimate of the World Bank, 220% of people of India live under the poverty line and 36% of the world’s population has been living in extreme poverty.

Poverty is a curse upon society. It demoralizes people and undermines their qualities and skills in them. By adopting proper and honest measures, poverty can be driven away from society. For this, the Government must take the initiative and strengthen the infrastructure by providing proper cropland, necessary finance, a proper market to sell products, education, modern tools, transport etc.

It is a matter of shame for us to live under the poverty line in this peak age of science. As long as there is poverty in any region of the world, humanity can not claim to be civilized in the true sense. 0 0 0
