Very touchy picture supported by relevant title and note. The picture may need some sharpness and colour management to be done, but good documentary picture.

An evocative shot and note. It makes me angry to think there is such poverty and lack of care in society for the elderly! They raised us, fought for our freedoms and health and we give them nothing in return (a generalisation, but unfortunately becoming the norm. Pensioners in England are some of the poorest people in this country). This is a good documentary shot. I am glad that you wrote the note and you gave the man a little help in his time of need.

I agree with other comments. Picture has more information that deviates the focus from main subject. Nonetheless, you made your point Biswajit. And it is unfortunate that we experience the imbalance and neglect. There are several spots I'd travelled in the US and I see such things here too and I sometimes wonder how to fix this universal problems.
