Dedicated to this gentleman who smilingly and willingly allowed me to click him, though he may not see his own image.
On 15th August every year we celebrate our Independence day.
What is independence?

This is a beautiful, but very sad picture !
It must be so terrible to be blind and not to be able to witness the wonders of the world ! It makes me think of these horrible stories one hears of children being blinded so they bring back more money from their begging.
However, this man somehow seems to have reached a sort of peace and introspection which hopefully brings him a certain quality of life.
Perhaps it's better to be blind, in order to reach a real insight through meditation...
Still, God didn't intend people to be blind.
So, your picture presents a real dilemna.
What do you mean in the sentence about independence and about the title ?
I would like an honest discussion about your post as you say you like sincere feedback however hard it may be.
Well, your post presents a very hard subject.
A few words about the photo itself : Magnificent contrast between the luminous face of the man and the darkness in which he is living. The effect is perfect concerning the situation.
How did you get that effect ?
Thanks for sharing.

Very good and strong photo!
The issue of blindness is something that I feel in a very special way, since some years ago an accident made spend a little time 'in the dark'. Happily the condition was reversed, but it made me really appreciate the possibility of seeing.
In the photo, I like how you managed to get that dark background, which makes a very good contrast with the face.

A thoughtful image, and a thoughtful comment to accompany. We sometimes forget the blessings we enjoy, and a strange contrast to use the blessing of sight to view this fine portrait of a man with none. The dark background really makes the gentleman stand out. Very nicely done.
