ABC Wednesday Round 7: U is for Urchin

U is for Urchin, which means a kid in rags.
We met this boy at Lansdowne, Uttranchal, India, a hill station, there were many pahari kids like him in that small hamlet. When he followed us he asked for chocolate, my friend bought one for him and I clicked him. The smartass also wished to see his picture. Just wish this 'hotson' becomes something in his life. Childhood is really precious.

For more interesting thing please visit ABC Wednesday

Date of Picture: 14th February, 2009

I wish we didn't have children living in poverty, but I guess the world has other priorities.

What a beautiful child. I'm glad your friend got him some chocolate. Sad to me when children are out on their own begging.

Oh, I have urchins asking me to take their photos all over Asia, and they nearly always want to see it! I think sharing it is part of the human touch. This little smart ass will no doubt go far in life.
