Begger's Paradise

Ajmer, apparently has a 100 million rupee begging industry..
The rate varies depending on the handicap. Someone without hands or legs can hope to pocket Rs 2,000 a day. The rate drops sharply to Rs 950 who still has the use of one eye, a hand and a leg..

Says a subject matter expert - "Begging is not only about standing and asking for money, but one must know how to play on the emotions of the donor and one must know the place where he or she should stand and beg"

And this completes the whole wtfness of this..
The 'master' is not an outsider. He's been a beggar himself. But now he can operate behind the scenes and control his team through cellphone messages
