Begging can't be regarded as a profession, but there are professional beggars but in any case this is not governed by the Constitution...!

Begging is not a profession, it is the poor living condition. Rights speak about right to live equally and therefore can work for it. Since beginning is not a profession or work, a begger has no constitutional right to claim that he has right for begging. No country expects that its citizen is to beg for a living.
