I was halted by the traffic light and he raced down to my car to beg for alms. I noticed him from the array of beggars and something about him caught my attention. He was very young, maybe about 12/14. I do not particularly like to give money to beggars on the road. I remember when a friend said that they used the money for very shameful things. "Look for registered charity organizations and support regularly. You will never feel guilty when you see anyone you cannot help. These people on the streets are hideous," he had cautioned me. Those warnings suddenly became muffled as I looked straight into this young lad's face. I wound down and handed him the N200 that was peeping through the unlocked part of my bag, just before the street light turned amber, and then green.
