So a few days back I was covering a wedding. If you've been a photographer then you'd know how everyone wants you to take their picture in some one million poses. Everyone wants to look good and they'll ask you to take their pictures until they find their most beautiful self, it's normal and is okay. It's okay to be liked and it's okay to make an effort to be liked. However, in all this commotion a beggar walked upto me and asked me if I could take his picture. For a moment I was shocked. I didn't know him so there was a good chance that he might never get the picture. Even if he did, how would he view it? How would he share it? I was dazzled and shocked not because a beggar asked me to take his picture, but because he too wanted to look and feel good. That despite his financial disadvantage, he wanted to be treated like the cultured humans. I know you must be thinking it's obvious, and it is, but at that moment it just struck a cord. I was moved and the moment the took his picture I saw the old men playing the instrument (I don't know what you call it, let me know in the comments please). In the middle of the celebration, I was confronted with men pushing themselves when in reality they should be living a retired life with their Grand children. I didn't know what to say and asap compliment to their hard work I took their picture, for that is all I could do. Here's a small request, please give people they deserve, give them a decent pay, and if you see a beggar and you don't feel like giving anything, then please don't discuss them or insult them, because like you their also humans with feelings.
