Photographer's Note

Musings around Christmas time:

First time in my life that I am using a quote from the Bible, but on this occasion when Jesus's birth is celebrated by the pious and consumerism and hedonism by the rest, I remembered how Jesus cared for the children.
It beggars belief how many millions of dollars are being spent in wealthy countries during this festive season while children around the world are dying from preventable diseases, civil wars and hunger. There are children who will never get the opportunity to sit at a desk in a school and learn to read and write.

Some people will feel a little nostalgic on seeing these homemade trucks and possibly remember their childhood when they too made such toys. But for them and their children and grandchildren the world has changed as the generations move up the social ladder. What future for these little boys?

A little boy was born into a carpenter's family and grew into someone with limitless empathy and deep sense of responsibility for the human race. How many Christians are truly his followers?

Matthew19:14
Jesus, however, said, "Let the little children come to me, and stop keeping them away, because the kingdom from heaven belongs to people like these."
