Homeless Men

In the recent census data for 2011 about 1.05 mn men were found to be homeless with over 600 thousand in cities. Around 1.8x times more men were found to be homeless in the urban areas as compared to women. The situation was not very different in the rural areas where more men are homeless as compared to women. The all-India average is at 1.4x times more homeless men.

As per census, homeless people are considered as people who live in the open on roadside, pavements, in hume pipes, under fly-overs, staircases, or in the open in places of worship, mandaps or railway platforms.

It is majority men who are homeless and still we call it a patriarchal society and state that women are homeless. A marriage amendment law is being proposed which envisages giving the share of man’s property to women and one of the justification is that majority of the women are forced on the streets in the event of a marital break-up. The census houseless data proves otherwise.

What do you plan to do for the houseless men of India? Let us all Stand up for a cause…

    Definitions also differ. In the U.S., people who live in shelter or temporary accommodations, and do not have a permanent address, are generally considered homeless.

  4. How does this compare to the sex ratio?
