Will you still need me ....

Mamallapuram

Will you still feed me, when I'm 64 !
Oups, I did it again, can't help it, a portrait of a Sadhu, beggar in front of the Moonrakers Restaurant in Mamallapuram, Tamil Nadu, South-India.
This man has most problaby no one to look after him, so he is on his own to survive. Do you recognize him ?

Still wondering what I would prefer ....
To be looked after very well for a long time isolated though in a home
or
to stay part of society on the streets less long caring for yourself, when I get old many years from now ?

went to Mamallapuram in December 2005 had a meal with this Saddu on New Year Eve at the Luna Magica by the beach, I was with a friend from Denmark who knows him quite well,,,, very strange to find him on internet, nice surprise. Thank you
