But their academic record will definitely get crushed and they will struggle in their day-to-day life because if the academic performance is affecting their life they won’t be able to cope up with the part-time job as well and the time will be wasted because we all know that how time is precious in a youngster’s and a student’s life.

Most of the people visit psychiatrists just because of the pressure and depression that they are getting from the poverty and the family members are also pressurizing them to earn money on a regular basis.

7. Comparisons with each other

One thing that the youngsters basically do and regularly do in this time of social media that the start comparing themselves with each other that how the person is presenting themselves and how they are talking what they are wearing and what kind of life shell they have and what kind of lifestyle do my parents give me any there are not up to the expectations and they are not meeting the expectations of the society.

Then they will definitely get frustrated and they will definitely get on the back foot and they will draw comparisons with each other which at times can become miss leading to the students because to meet of the college expenses and meet up lifestyle they will definitely take the wrong path they will start snatching the basic needs such as mobile phone etc and the crime rate will also increase.

As mentioned earlier that what the poverty really becomes at the end of the day it becomes a basic source of increase in the crime rate because most of the youngsters want to cope up with the basic needs of their lifestyle and if they are not meeting the expenses in a positive way and from the positive way then they will definitely take the wrong track which cannot only destroy their life which cannot only affect the lifestyle of their upcoming generations and which can also affect the mental health of their parents but it will also destroy the peace and prosperity of the society.

Because when somebody will get affected that a thug has snatched his mobile phone then definitely he will get a huge amount of trauma and mental pain and similarly the crime rate will increase rapidly and day by day the people will die some people have died in mobile snatching and we have seen that in the news regularly.

9. Destroy the peace of society

Poverty not just only destroyed the individual itself but also destroys the mental peace of society and because of that the whole environment and the whole society struggle with the mental peace because, at the end of the day, everybody wants to live in peace and prosperity everybody wants to live with a cool-headed mind but if somebody is destroying the peace.

Then it affects the whole society and the whole Nation on a large scale because the negative impact and the negative image is also going of your country to other countries and neighbors which is definitely not a good sign for any self-established and respected Nation.

10. A negative image of the country

When your country is disturbed with poverty and education is also not up to the mark the definite and negative image of your country will be given to the people all over the world that a certain country is not producing any kind of a valuable asset for itself but also it is falling the whole Nation on the largest scale.


To conclude we can say that education is also the most valuable asset but unfortunately, the poverty is also being a most important demon that has been stopping the young generations to get an education on our scale the government and the basic officials should take a stand and make a  policy that can stop the poverty on the largest scale.

If you are wealthy, please focus on your society and give the poor families free education, and pay their school fees, and academic fee as well. then this is a good deed for you as help poor people to give education.
