My Scholarship entry - The realms of poverty in India

The problems of extreme poverty are the same regardless of age and gender. These blind singers are an example for how crippling poverty can be. Any kind of help from the government or other agencies never reach them and they survive life by singing at local celebrations without an identity in life. They move between places in the country searching for festivals to perform their art and make a living. Their life is a matter of curiosity for others yet they are denied even the basic human rights.
