Across the street on Flickr.
For once there was an open view of the mural across the street from my cbi building. usually there’s cars parking along the street obstructing the view. Today was a rare day so I had to capture it.
I’ve been going to the boxing gym 3 days in a row. I am physically tired, my body aches but my spirit is strong. I plan on going at least 4-6 days a week. For once I want to be able to see a flat stomach on me lol
My parents have been married for 27 years and they’re still going strong. They’re each other best friends and it’s pretty fucking awesome and I am honored to witness what true love is.
Forever reblogging this.
And the fact that there’s more than one company means several people called makes it even better.
It is an unusual school in an unusual location and is run by an unusual teacher.
Rajesh Kumar is a shopkeeper by profession but spends hours every morning teaching around 80 children from the poorest of the poor in India’s capital.
The 43-year-old visited the construction of the Delhi transit station a few years ago and was disturbed by the sight of many children playing at the site instead of attending school.
When he questioned the parents working at the sites they all said there were no schools in the vicinity and no one cared.
Consequently, his open-air class room was born - between pillars and beneath the tracks of the Delhi transit system, known as the Metro.
Every few minutes a train passes above, the children unperturbed by its sounds.
There are no chairs or tables and the children sit on rolls of polystyrene foam placed on the rubble.
Three rectangular patches of wall are painted black and used as a blackboard.
Anonymous donors have contributed cardigans, books, shoes and stationery for the children, as their parents cannot afford them.
One unnamed individual sends a bag full of biscuits and fruit juice for the pupils every day - another incentive for the children to turn up for their studies.
Heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time. Crazy.
