    It is a great pity that a 19 year old youth could take such a course in life. Could he be reformed or is that lifestyle already imbedded in him. Then again he is exposed to the elements – he has no fixed place of abode. Where are his parents. Did he abandon them or did they abandon him? Only time will tell.
