I did another home visit today in a slum in Tengra (southeast side of Kolkata). The home is next to the train track on one side and a glass tower apartment on the other side. The area is being developed with more luxury living condo apartments. The rich and the poor live next to each other, but they might as well be light years apart. Every day the rich people look from their glass towers to the streets below and only see what they wish to see. And every day the poor look up and wonder what are beyond those glass windows. Only in the eyes of God are the poor recognized as beautiful and worthy. But in much of our society, they are forgotten and unseen. They wait for hope to come, but often times they have given up and have accepted the lives they are given since hope seldom comes.
