The Photo of the Year.

I was so touched by this photo, which won The Photo of the Year. I wonder how many women in this world have the heart of this Bishnoi mother. And The Bishnois are a community of nature worshippers in the state of Rajasthan, India. I am sure the rich and the knowledgeable one, might find it difficult to breastfeed another live who doesn't belong to them. More so is an animal, a young fawn and not a baby of our kind. Perhaps a simple woman, poor, uneducated but full of spiritual love might have it. It is so that when we became richer and more knowledgeable in person, would we loose our giving heart to nature. So sad! I rather not crazy to be wealthy and to forget my purposes of life... To help those who need me.
