The reason, For picking the Straight title for the Article, is to hit your mind at once. As the Title suggests, A Needy person’s Hunger is the Business Model for some restaurants in Mumbai. Still it’s somewhere helping the Poor, is the satisfying reason to share this with those who are not from MUMBAI. I am not from Mumbai, so can’t actually express the that actually how the people sitting outside the Restaurants and waiting for some Middle or upper-class person’s Gaze. Because, if they saw them, there are strong chances that the Hungry person will get FOOD in within minutes. The Restaurants can be called as Hunger Cafes, and what they actually do you will understand in next few lines.
The piece from an Old Article on The New York times written by ANAND GIRIDHARADAS
The hunger cafes have stood for decades on a stretch of road in the Mahim neighborhood. Mumbai’s broken, drifting men squat in neat rows in front of each establishment, waiting patiently. Vats full of food simmer behind the doors. What separates them from the food is the 25-cent-per-plate cost — a gulf harder to bridge than one might assume. But every so often, a car pulls up and makes a donation, and the men dine.
The restaurant owners describe their mission as charity, but their establishments are profit making, if only meagerly so. Only in India, perhaps, where no business niche long goes unexploited, would a group of restaurateurs rely for their livelihoods on the starving.
The article exactly, talk about the Charity in which we Indians of any class believe in. There are Cafes, who have made the Business Model around the charity we prefer to give to the needy. Plus, shares the different angles and ways in which we Indians prefer to help the needy people who, just can’t afford to do all the things to live a better life.
The Hunger cafes work around, the method of getting the Tip, by showing the faces of those who are in need of Food. It’s not, the restaurants can’t afford to help them at their own. But, in straight words its the Greed of the OWNERS who have lead give chance to Such a Business model to grow.
