Introduction: These lines are taken from the poem “The Beggar” written by “Dr.Ammangi Venugopal”.

About the poet: Dr.Ammangi Venugopal born near Hyderabad. He did his doctoral research in Osmania university, Hyderabad. He is a popular Telugu poet who was honored Kaloji Narayana Rao in 2015. The Beggar was originally written in Telugu Poem titled as “Bichchagadu“.

Context: The poem “ The Beggar” projects the intense grief of the farmer’s pathetic condition to create an impact on the reader and to grab the attention.

Explanation: Farmers, the food providers to all struggles to survive. They starve. Yet, they toil. Their feet bleed. Their eyes are full of shadows of their sad stories. Their hunched backs tell us how hard they work. Yet, their stomachs get no food. They are capable of feeding millions. And those millions do not include in them those farmers. To express the farmer’s infinite capacity the poet has used the expression,” ability to mitigate the sky’s hunger“.

The poet potrays our farmer’s physical appearance frail, dark shadowed eyes, don’t misunderstand him, he is not a beggar. He is our farmer, who can feed the world but today he is hungry and empty stomach.

How cruel the modern society responsible for this irony is ! the poem shows the complexities of current times, thus acquiring for itself universal appeal. A farmer today is in misery, farmer’s dusky eyes are dark with shadows of their hands are soiled and severed and their feet bleed. Yet their ability to produce food and satisfy others hunger remains fully active. Although he satisfies the hunger of even skies, his stomach gets no food. The modern society is playing a cruel joke on him.

Conclusion: Thus, the poem, “The Beggar” plays a significant role to think over the problem of the farmer and finds a way-out.
