It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s Superman! Such a popular phrase, right?
Now, how about guessing what this is?
I was looking out of the window when I noticed this woman begging from passersby. I was on the third floor of the building and from where I was standing, it was hard to know what’s on this woman’s back but I was sure that it was not a bag. Out of curiousity, I used the videocam’s zoom feature to find out and what I saw agitated me.
It’s an infant!!!
If she could go chasing people and cars under the scorching heat of the sun, then this woman’s fit to work. Yet, here she is, using her baby as props while begging for money or food from passersby. It was about 1:00PM at that time and I just can’t imagine how a mother could afford to expose her baby to the heat of the sun in such an uncomfortable position!
I can’t help feeling sorry for the baby who looks like it’s between 1 to 3 months old. As I was looking at them, I was even wondering if it’s still alive because, mind you, this woman moves so fast because she tries to catch up with the people passing by – oblivious to the fact that she has a baby on her back!
Can you imagine that you are this woman?
