Our countries have developed by leaps and bounds. We can see lovely, stylish cars on the roads, high rise, posh buildings every where, fashionable, trendy shops and malls, supermarkets and hypermarkets at convenient places, people dressed in expensive, branded clothes, wonderful food joints with unimaginable delicacies, latest electronic gadgets at home, people busily speaking on mobile phones every where and so on. There seems to be no dearth of money with the public at large.
But take a look at the people in the following photos. Progress and prosperity has not touched their lives. They are struggling to make a livelihood and desperately trying to keep their body and souls together. What is the use of all the development and progress if millions of people like this still have to live in perpetual penury and poverty? Many die of wars, heart disease, terrorism, leaks from nuclear plants, starvation, malnutrition,air,water and noise pollution. I am sure there is some answer to all these man made calamities.

My niece,Shirley, was engaged to Kamaldeep on 7th November in Chennai. I could not attend this function on account of my health problem. These photos were taken by my nephew Dileep George and his brother in law. I am posting them for your visual pleasure.
