Poverty

  • What is poverty?
  • Try to make up your own definition of this term
  • Who are the poor?
  • Why does poverty exist?
  • Will we ever be able to eradicate poverty?

Take 15 minutes to write down your thoughts on these questions, and then discuss with a classmate.

We are going to read to hand-out texts today, and work with them (one factual and one fictional.) The short story “A Real Lady” is written by an Indian freelance journalist and blogger, Nita J. Kulkarni. If you want to check out her blog, you can find it here. Kulkarni writes about life, politics, different issues, movies, literature etc, with a main focus on India, but not just that. Her blog is definitely worth the visit.
