Would you be happy ?

Would you be happy ?

Madurai

Tell me ...
Would you be happy if you had to stand there for almost an hour to let that red gunk dry up on your
face like a living terracotta pot, not even in an expensive beauty parlor but in the middle of a
bazaar where everybody is watching you, imaging all the rash on your face becoming even worse as
such ? ... what a long question :) ... would you ?

I can imagine to feel deeply ashamed as a young boy but grandmother is determined, surely this boy
would advice you, don't get rash as a young boy or you will get traumatized by grandmother !

And you, would you do that to your young boy ?

dont know what i would do in the same situation...
if i were the grandma, desperate and didnt have any
other way of helping...probably exactly the same....

hope, the child is better now and the illness/irritation passed..and the treatment worked...
thank you for sharing...

A very impressive picture. No need to read the narration under the picture, because the picture speaks for itself already. :)

This is a great picture and a great statement. It shows what people will go through when proper medication is unavailable.
