PATNA: A beggar in Jharkhand has turned utter penury gripping his life into tales of luxury by adopting innovating idea—investing money collected through begging into his own business.
The result is he has been earning over Rs half a million in a month and leading a happy life with his three wives.
Chhotu Baraik, a resident of Chakradharpur in West Singhbhum district, claims earning around Rs30,000 per month from begging alone, which he has beautifully invested in other business.
40-year-old beggar is handicapped from both his legs but he never allowed his handicap come in the way of his earning, instead he turned this bane into boon!
“Initially, I tried hard to make both ends meet but poverty continued to follow me like my shadow. Eventually I turned to begging and earned good money but I invested this money into various businesses to earn good profits,” the beggar was quoted as saying Gulf News.
According to reports, the beggar has two faces—while he begs in the day, in the evening he had been holding meeting of his staffs with he being the distributor of the company, Vestige, a leading direct selling company dealing in world class health and personal care products.
Despite earning handsome money from various side businesses, the beggar though has not quit his main business of earning money—the begging, which he claims giving first priority.
