What i the real meaning of Poverty?
                                                       Poverty in simple word means is the lack of human needs, like food, water, air, and all other basic needs.

             Poverty is pronounced deprivation in well-being, and comprises many dimensions. It includes low incomes and the inability to acquire the basic goods and services necessary for survival with dignity. Poverty also encompasses low levels of health and education, poor access to clean water and sanitation, inadequate physical security, lack of voice, and insufficient capacity and opportunity to better one’s life

Though INDIA boosts of a high economic rate it is shameful that most of the people in

INDIA are under poverty as INDIA'S population is estimated to be more than 1 billion out of them nearly 300-400 million peoples are under poverty not even having a single meal for one day.



  1. Poverty can be a root cause of societal dilemmas. With some people can acquire an income protection plan in case of unemployment, some people have no financial capabilities to do so. With the government doing something to address the issue is the right thing to do.

  2. Hi Im doing a project on poverty and development, a powerpoint presentation. Could I use the image from this page, it really captures the issue.
