Marziya Takes The Blessings of a Grand Old Lady of Bandra, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
She waits outside politicians offices for better living conditions and a quality of life I asked her why she said without uttering a single word by blessing Marziya.
And she is right the Muslim girl child of Marziyas age from poor families need hope and succor and this old lady is fighting for their rights in her own unique way.
And this image made my eyes moist for reasons more than one.
And I dont know if images in newspapers really make you cry in all humility and gratitude without taking anything away from what they shoot mechanically giving a fodder day in and day out without a break.
This is dedicated to the selfless service of photo journalists ...without bitterness or cheek n jowl satire.
