Vegetable vendor in Pushkar

By sawsengee  
Street capture of a vegetable vendor in the market bazaar of Pushkar Rajasthan.........with a cross-eyed vision & a crippled left hand, she tried her best to dispense off the morning vegetables to ready customers.
p.s. I hope this honest image does not offend anyone as it is truly a fact of life & to some, it is a way of life.
THANK YOU to DaveRyder, IainHamer, carmenfuch, Bigdenbo, John, ColleenA, badgerwil70 for the UAs & to those who voted, commented, my deep appreciation for your continual support. GrinGrinGrin

This could never offend Sawsengee. You are showing an aspect of life that few of us see for ourselves. Thank you for posting it.

It can only offend those who don't want to acknowledge that hardship xists.
It should be seen as empowering in that those in haerdship can just get on and do their very best without complaining despite what life has thrown at them.
