Recently I have been noticing a lot of beggars in Chennai. These beggars are not the shabby dirty kind you usually see. These are well dressed impeccable ones. They have a new way of begging. They come near you and curl their lips or stick the tongue out or make some gesture. But if you offer them money they walk away.

It's really hard to understand what they want. My heart bleeds at such things

Sad very very sad.

Hi

As a follow up to the previous post:

Hello All,

I did interview a couple of these guys doing weird gestures on the road. They were candid enough to admit that they were hard for cash. Here is what I could perceive of their expectations:

The minimum expectation is Rupee 5.

1. Lip curl -- 10 Rupees
2. Tongue stick -- 15 rupees
3. Body Scratch - 20 Rupees
4. Head scratch - 25 rupees

Now let's all be courteous to these people and not embarrass them by giving them mere change. Let your humanitarian side show by following the above code.

Thank you all.

Anu
