My place to beg at Spencer Plaza

Chennai

One of the first thing to do when you arrive, was getting money. So up to Chennai.
There are a lot of handicapped people always visible in the street.
Time to take a rest and sit down with him, talking and sharing some food : polio had hit him.

There are many polio-handicapped people like him as result of fake polio-vacinations.
Although there are even more people with hidden handicaps, in fact, who is without ...
and he is not different from us because his handicap happens to be visable,
at least handicappped people are not hidden here from society,
reminding others how lucky they are with their abilities.

He was a very fine man to talk with and I felt proud to meet him.
Hopely you notice the difference between beggars and beggars,
don't turn always your head away ... ashamed to look in a mirror of society ...

Lately they installed a 24h self-banking, even a train-reservation facility in Mamallapuram,
so I didn't see him anymore, maybe you did ?
