glimpse shining in their eyes…

Delhi charity campaign

 

When I looked at them, I looked down at their feet and found that most of them don’t have even slippers to protect their legs. This is what is at first when we look at anyone, which is their outer appearance. From this I can guess, how miserable will be their living conditions. I can see a glimpse shining in their eyes for something new. I think queuing up is something new for them and that they are on their first steps towards the vast world of knowledge. This picture captured in Delhi when there was a charity campaign organized for those students. One of my friends who is studying in Bihar, sent this picture for me.

 

Nothing carries over…

HOW???
HOW???

 

In the slums, people’s ability to modify the living conditions in minimal, because they do not have the resources to do so. A few pieces of tin, scrap lumber, card board make a house. Clothing and food are scavenged from the refuse of others with more. There is no coasting for the slum dwellers. Everything is now, today and each day is a new struggle for survival. The gains made yesterday were maybe enough, but they were consumed yesterday. Nothing carries over, except the needs.

Slumdog millionaire film scene

Slumdog millionaire film scene

The story of Jamai  Malik an 18 year old- orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who is about to experience the biggest day of his life with the whole nation watch. He is just one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupee on India’s “ who wants to be a millionaire” but when the show breaks for the night police arrest him on suspicion of cheating how could a street kid know so much. Desperate to prove his innocence Jamal tells the story of his life in the slum where he and his brother grew up, of their adventures together on the road of vicious encounters with local gangs.

This story entrenched in everyone’s mind. Slums children education is in the home, but more often in the mud paths that pass for streets in the slum. Childhood is shortened. Children have to do something useful for the family’s survival. In this film Jamal answered the all question through his experience in slums. Though, he did not have the facilities to study, his slum experiences taught a lot in his life and made worthy.

This place describes as City of Dreams, Mumbai in India. People flock from all over and pour into houses like these along the roads. These kids were playing and roaming around the area. They never think about their studies and health. Life of these children is being in a dismal world.
