I See. I Like. I Blog.
This is the reality. It is humanity’s flaw, it is not beautiful, and it is sad; but most of all it is one that should never be ignored.
Thank you for visiting.
This photo is wonderful on so many levels..

Amazing picture but very sad
Such a powerful image Raja. Children and the elderly are so vulnerable, and it is so easy to turn a blind eye…
Powerful image, if only we humans could all believe we’re one and work together! ❤
You’ve been to Xi’an, Raja? I’m dying to go to China, but we keep umming and ahhing over if we’ll go someday. Definitely going to Europe. I suppose we’ll just see what the state of the world is by then. Sad sight, your photo, we have homeless in Australia, too, of course, and will have even more if our Prime Minister has his way.
Yes, I’ve been fortunate to be able to travel around a bit. My friends and I did China (Xi’an and Guangzhou) on our own, without tour guides, so things got a bit confusing because of the language problem. Still it was worth it because Xi’an is pretty amazing, especially the Terracota Warriors and the Hua Mountains.
About the photo, I decided to put it up for those of us who are more fortunate to spare a moment and think of what’s happening outside our cozy little bubble. I have no formula to get rid of poverty, but I think a bit of give and take between us might help a little…?
Okay, enough said. I’m rambling, I know. Thanks for dropping by Christine ❤
It’s the Terracotta Warriors I’m bursting to see, and The Wall, and the karst mountains. I started to teach myself Mandarin from a cdrom, but I’ll probably sign up for an online MOOC if I see one, so by the time we go I can at least say hello. I can learn online from a website called orange (or something) using my libray card. I just finished reading a book written by a bloke who recently walked from Mongolia across China, to Hong Kong. He can have that on his own. The writer pointed out how the gap between the poor and well off seemed to be getting wider in China as more people rise up into the middle classes. Your heart is in the right place. ❤
We only had time to polish up our charade skills. Very animated bunch we were out there..heh 😉 Good luck in your Mandarin lessons!
Absolutely true, and splendid. You have the “post of the day” with this one. I believe your take on this image will further shape the direction we are all headed….the direction we all should be headed. Well done indeed.
I am truly grateful for your support, wsmarble. Your generous comment is much appreciated!
Namaste’ 2 U across da werld 🙂 frum Q
Selamat datang to Duniya Ku 🙂
It is hard to imagine what a poor woman like that has to go through on a daily basis- the indignities, the fears, exposure to weather and rude people….being poor and/or homeless by yourself is a huge survival challenge, but then having to take care of a baby in the process….my heart goes out to her. Thanks for capturing this image.
such one powerful image.
