Gaya (Bihar) : A group of beggars in this Bihar town has opened their own bank, which they run and manage to provide financial security in times of crisis.
Dozens of beggars, who have been depending for their survival on alms from hundreds of Hindu devotees at the gate of 'Maa Manglagauri Mandir' (temple) in Gaya town for years, have started the bank.
The beggars call it Mangala Bank.
"It is true that we have established a bank for ourselves," said Raj Kumar Manjhi, one of the 40 beggars who are members of this unique "bank".
