So I’ve seen weird searches to my blog. Most interesting being this one search term along the lines of ‘bazaar in zeerakpur’. No that is not a place, and its a creepy joke if that’s one.
But every now and then, lots of people show up looking for the lowdown on Pakistani beggars. Take a look at these ones I got yesterday:
“dawn news articles on beggars”
“street beggars history in pakistan”
Unfortunately I have no answers. The only thing I usually have on beggars is perhaps the not-so-well-wishes I get when I often wave a hand. Maybe I should have a conversation with them some time. Perhaps about the never ending rumors of shop keepers bringing in beggars from the street to get change for a thousand.
