These are some of the images from my jaipur trip last year.  Really shows how ironical our world has become when someone’s misery becomes an object of entertainment for others.  Tourists and locals seemed to treat them as a showpiece.  These women were lying on floor lifeless, desolated and the word ‘hope’ is a luxury they can’t afford.  I tried to bring out the depth of this sombre situation through my photographs.

Old wayOld Way by Ivan Aleksic

Sometimes the old men and women were living history and because of the extensive experience and knowledge gave them special recognition and respect.
Today, they are subject to ridicule and contempt. Can be heard from the young to the old worn out its life and now spend only pennies, they think they have suffered their hope that their life has already passed … They are no longer good for nothing, but for the cemetery.
So tells the modern era in which it is grown the cult of youth. An old man who thinks and feels properly, have the right to rebel against this view, as you have the right to love and tears – to the right never gets old.
