Eyewitness – Abandoned and Abused

A hungry and injured child has nowhere to go.

[Text and pictures by Mayank Austen Soofi]

Nobody knew his name. Found crying in pain at Hazrat Nizamuddin railway station, he was scared as a crowd collected around him.

He said, with difficulty, that he had not eaten anything since last five days. He later kept quiet.

There were injury marks on his head, stomach and backside. One gentleman gave him Rs. 50. Others clicked their tongue in sympathy. The railway police later whisked him away.


Who is He




Look at Him!




It Hurts




What Now

Do you go looking for these creatures? How awfully exciting it must be! What did you do/feel while taking those photographs?

was it all staged? did you pay the man Rs 50 to give to the lad? did you pay the lad to beat him up? you have a cruel face, and after all, you are indian.
