Rahul Gandhi: 'Poverty is a state of mind.' Do you agree?

  • Poverty doesn't exist in real life

    It is just a single story.Finance is not the only thing that affects life .If you think yourself as rich you will become rich later. Money comes and goes like waves.Where there is a will there is a way
    If someone calls you poor ,it is thier problem not yours. They are trying to compare you to others and as long as you ignore them thier words will do nothing and pass like a breeze.

  • Poverty is a state of mind really

    If we think we are poor then we will be poor if we think we are rich we will be rich . Because man can do anything by using education. Man can invent so many things only by using education. So if a poor man is educated then he can also do great things. So poverty is not in the living sense it is the state of mind

  • Poverty is also a state of mind, but not "just"

    Poverty is also a physical and economic state of being, and what effects body also affects the mind. Living in such deprived conditions physically, inevitably affects ones mindset. You'll find much of those in poverty just don't know any other way to live even when given the opportunity. So yes when one has lived all their life in poverty it also becomes a state of mind, because they've never known any better.

  • In my opinion, I dont think so

    Did you know that APJ Abdul Kalam was a boatman. He used to carry people to the other side of the shore, and while the people were doing their chores and busy, he used to study chapters of physics. This is how we know him today. There are many other people who have escaped the vicious circle of poverty, without the help of others. Eminem also had a poor background. Many renowned people did. Eminem quoted," Fame hit me like a ton of bricks." Quoting Walt Disney, " If u can dream it, u can do it," and never forget these lines........ WHERE THERE IS A WILL, THERE IS A WAY.

  • Poverty is not a state of mind

    Poverty is a state or a situation were one cannot afford one's basic need. It is not within the mind; however, it is the way one lives. Lines set for people who are on the poverty level gives a meaning that they cannot change the situation of poverty; most importantly, one can change one's mind...

  • 'Poor' quality of life

    Poor is when the person is unable to enjoy basic amenities. He should have access to drinking water, nutrition, sanitation, shelter, primary education, and elementary medical care. If not, he is poor.

    In response to other comments, not everyone can be Kalam or Walt Disney. Basic amenities should be available for all- from janitor to farmer to construction worker to miner.

  • Poverty defined by the specific income/year, it is not a state of mind.

    If poverty is defined with a specific amount of money one is earning in a specific amount of time, then it is absolutely not a state of mind, it is the state of being.

    Although the amount/year for example for the poverty line is also debatable but even if we agree on that, there will be people above that line or way above that line will feel that they are poor. So beyond the set limit, it is a state of mind but primarily it is a state of being.

  • It's a state that you body is in

    When you've got an entire village, for example, dying from lack of food, living in utter poverty, with no sanitation and no clean drinking water...I don't think it's the state of their minds. When you can't pay your bills, go to Dr or buy food. Plus there is a level of the amount of income that is known as Poverty level.

  • Education vs jobs

    No poverty is not a state of mind as ,when people are born they are to be given proper education to form there base ,if they won't be having a base they won't be able to secure any position in there colleges but for some people going to the college is a luxury ,some people who even go to good colleges and get a nice degree are still sitting at there homes. So if a person is well educated then only will he/she has a chance for getting a job which could get him/her sufficient income for there own sustainese

  • Poverty is not a state of mind... It's a physical living condition.

    POVERTY:
    a : the state of one who lacks a usual or socially acceptable amount of money or material possessions
    b : renunciation as a member of a religious order of the right as an individual to own property
    c : the state or condition of having little or no money, goods, or means of support; condition of being poor.

    Poverty is defined by how much money you don't have... It's not a mental thing. Ask a poor man with starving children and no home if this is all just a 'state of mind.'

I understand the "state of mind" argument, but at the end of the day if one rises above poverty they will have money. One can think positive with or without money, but one can't beat poverty without money.
