Aminata Sow Fall ☆ 7 Summary

La Grève des bàttu Free read ´ 7 Hey know that giving alms is a divine obligation and that Allah's good will is vital to worldly promotion So when the beggars withdraw their charitable service the pious city civil servants and businessmen start to pan The christian bible teaches that the poor will always be with us but no one really wants them around Especially when they are aggressively asking tourists for alms Mour Ndiaye the Director of the Department of Public Health and Hygiene under takes an ambitious project to remove the beggars from the city His motivations are suspect First he sees the beggars are sub humans Second he has grand political ambitionsIn true modern fabulist fashion Mour s adventure is one of sweeping successes minor frustrations and superstitious interference His frustrations are rooted in his own failings and moral nastiness and one is loathe to feel sorry for his ultimate plightWhere the book fails I think is in its scant development of the community of beggars There is a structure set up a sort of organization with Salla Niang a strong lady boss at the head But as for the rest of the beggars they exist as a herd a rabble Which undercuts one of the messages of the book which seems to be that the poor are necessary so one not try to dictate how they remain with us
