Goan Beggar

By jove
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.

that we live in a world which allows such things is an indictment on us all, great image, terrible thing to behold........

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

This is a brilliant shot ,it saddens me though,we ought all count our blessings each day,it's so terrible that this extreme poverty still exists all over the world .

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.
