Hi.
This is a very regular sight in Goa.
There are many many beggars, it seems on every street corner there's another one with a hand outstretched.
A lot like this woman are just old.
But some are limbless and a lot have withered limbs from Polio.
Every one you see pulls at your heart strings simply because we are not used to this sight in the UK.
I think this is the side of third world countries I dont like.
Joe.

a great shot with good detail but sad that these people live the lives we know nothing about, without visiting the country

Thought provoking image, the result of the Fall of Man when men sins against God. We have to work to feed ourselves , first world or 3rd world alike.

Sorry for the large space, my enter key stocked up when I clicked the buttons.
