The good, the bad, and the constructive

One day in Mumbai, three pictures:

I went to the roof of the apartment to have a good look at the surrounding neighborhoods, and there I saw a teenage boy quietly soothing his little brother, I thought it was such a sweet sight.  Throughout my trip in India, I often see older children caring for the younger ones, something we are not use to seeing in the west.

I went inside the neighborhood slum for a look and I saw some improvement projects going on.

I was hanging on to the door of an opposite train just like these guys when I took this shot.  If you look carefully, you'll see in the middle of all that garbage is a guy taking a dump.  A minute after this picture was taken, a little girl somehow made it between the two trains to poop as well.  I was utterly shocked at the state of the train station.

  3. Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to know so much
    approximately this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you simply could do with a few percent to drive
    the message house a bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog.

    An excellent read. I'll definitely be back. http://www.toonamiinfolink.com/modules.php?name=Your_Account&op=userinfo&username=RenatoSal

  5. I rarely leave a response, but i did some searching and wound
    up here "The good, the bad, and the constructive".
    And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or does it look like some of these responses look like they are coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on other places, I'd
    like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list
    of the complete urls of your shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page
    or twitter feed?
