    I am working in an organisation in Shakespeare Sarani, Kolkata. I feel very sad when I see some women engage children below 2 years in begging at the Shakespeare Sarani Chowrangee crossing. This road is one of the most busiest roads in Kolkata during the office time. My sincere request to take a special note of the situation and act accordingly. Some of the children are suffering from malnutrition. Please see the mater.
