What do you see in the above image?
Can you guess?
You may or may not.
Yet a picture can convey 1000 thoughts.
Let me tell
The posture of this person gives you a hint that he is a senior citizen.
He is seen sitting on a pavement that gives an idea of his status in the (so-called) civilized society.
The clothes he is wearing tells of his financial status.
The blue bag( empty)on which he is resting tells his only richness.
The way he has covered his entire face with a semitransparent plastic mask tells about his health status.
A plaster bandage on the left side of his forehead tells that he must have suffered some face injury.
If you closely observe, there is a small opening in his face mask at nose, telling that he is breathing.
His hands are clenched and kept on his lap indicates his helplessness or frustration or maybe he is feeling cold due to outside weather.
He is sitting next to a closed shutter indicates the absence of a roof over his head.
He appears to be unwelcome.
He is all alone.
And he seems to be abandoned.
And the same old story all over the world.
Who is responsible?
Can you blame God if you are a believer in God?
I don’t know.
The time at which the click taken was approximately 8.00 pm.
This is the story of this person
Poor, abandoned, homeless with health problems.
This person is part of the society at large which lacks sympathy, empathy or compassion.
For the rest of the people, it’s another day in paradise!
Moral of the story– Help the homeless if you can afford.
*** End of the story ***
“You can spend money on new housing for poor people and the homeless, or you can spend it on a football stadium or a golf course” Jello Biafra
The World still cares for you if only…
Nobody cares for you unless you are beautiful, rich, popular or dead” unknown
