India is a second largest populated country in the world with 1.34 billion people. Pondicherry is a union territory of 1.3+ million people living. The street of Pondicherry filled with homeless people roaming about without employment and basic needs. The main problem of the homelessness is poverty, unemployment, and disability. Most of the homeless people are from neighboring states that come in search of work or to beg for their survival since it is a tourist place. The age group is from 22 above; among this group, the illiterate ratio is high. The main occupations are waste collecting and begging. Mostly the old and disabled people do begging in front of worship places. They do not have any particular places as such to stay, and they do not have any belongings other than one carry bag. They sleep on the street with many challenges with police, rowdies, and mosquitoes. They do not have any toilet facilities or place to take bath. They all lake hygiene and nutrition, this group do not have access to transportation because of the shabby look and stinking smile. They don’t get proper medical assistant during sickness. The homeless person does not have recreation on the street if they go the public places like cinema theatres, parks or other places they are chased away. Therefore, the only recreation that they find on street is going to a local liquor shop, which chains them on the process of time. The homeless are divided into three categories; the first group is old and sick, the second group is unemployed adults. The third group is physically and mentally challenged people. Many of the able people looking for a job opportunity, the old and sick, disabled people looking for shelter with care and support.
