It's a very disturbing title, right? Unfortunately, this is the reality beyond humanity.Few weeks ago, I was working on a project on providing free prosthetic hands to the underprivileged children who lost their hands in terrible accidents. While working on this project, I met; Tara.Tara is an 11-year-old girl who begs in one of the busiest traffic signals of Dhaka. She lost her hand ( up to wrist) in a terrible accident when she was only 7-year-old. But her mother gave the doctor an extra money to cut her hand up to the elbow!!!Why!!! What is the reason-----
When I secretly interviewed her mother I found the dirty truth behind this. The reason which driven her to cut off half of her own daughter’s hand. Here is a part of my conversation with Tara’s mother-
Me : Tara told me that you took her to a hospital after her accident to cut her good physical shape hand? Why???
Tara’s Mother: You see, we are beggars!!!
Me : So?!!!
Tara’s Mother: People give more money when they see a small girl with no hands.
Me: To get more begging money you cut her hand ????
Tara’s Mother: Yes!!!
Now-a-days, in the poorest communities at the slums they are randomly doing this inhuman crime.WHY?! Because, they took it as a good lifetime investment through which they can make more living!!! Irony but true.There is no law enforcement regarding this in the South Asia and this had made this inhuman act more random and fearless!
