                              poverty as a challenge 
               yep poverty is a challenge for our country to face and even to reduce. to reduce the poverty our country's government have tried a lot but because the people are illiterate and they don't have a good knowledge they never come to know the laws and acts implemented by the government to help them out. we need to help them out to develop put country a lot. our country have a good amount of population and even half of our not even half but also three fourth people are not educated and even they don't have their basics necessities at all. it's really a bad luck to our country. all though we call our country as a developing country it's actually only developing only a technical way but  not at all in all the aspects like development of the poor in our country. the poor don't even have a 3 time full stomach meal like the rich ones they strive hard for only 1 time meal which is not even enough at all  enough for their work done. they work a lot in all the seasons in the different environmental conditions. but the rich people aren't like that they work in the A.C in the way to want to work.
