Poverty – not of the wallet but of heart often reduces human beings to something far worse, this is a harsh truth that Indian politician Chanakya said, “Sarvashunya daridrata” I dont know if he was referring to emptiness of wallet or emptiness of heart/soul, I will assume that he was talking about the latter.
A poor heart often fills up with envy, hatred and malice for those “Who have” what it seeks, yearns for and acts destructively.
The power of destruction being the stronger one, often succeeds too. In the end this poverty is a blackhole that just sucks in everything close by it, including light. It truly is Shunya (zero) or maybe negative.
