Though we might extend all sorts of possible helps to our neighbouring countries but the fact that extending help to all such deprived people would not be enough unless the other countries capable of extending help come forward to take care of the needy people.

In this thread, when author say 'Indian population' what does it mean? Indian citizen on temporary stay in Sri Lanka-NRIs in Sri Lanka- or the Sri Lankan citizen who have Indian Origin some generations ago? If hey are Sri Lankan citizen it is the responsibility of Sri Lankan government and people to take care of them. If they are Indian NTIs then they have access to Indian embassy and Indian government for necessary care and even return to India.
So an Indian with even the minimum commonsense will simply ignore the referred news as blatant malicious propaganda with mala fide intentions.
But if the news would have been Sri Lankan population compelled to begging then there could have some sense and we as neighboring country could have been concerned and taken some possible help to them. In fact India is doing all possible in the situation to help Sri Lanka in its economic crisis of its own making.
The current problem in Sri Lanka is the result of ignoring its reliable umbilical related neighbor and trying to curry favour with a hegemonic China.
