Mouse of Daula Shah
(As the story goes), The shrine of Daula Shah is in Gujrat (Pakistan). The shrine is thronged by infertile couple as the dead saint is known for his miracle to grace infertile couples with children. The couple pray there and if graced by children, donate first born to shrine. The undertakers put iron skull caps over skulls of these children to make them micro cephalic. They obviously become mentally retarded. These children, commonly known as mice of Daula Shah;  are used for begging and prostitution.
They are easily recognised by small heads, mental retardation, green cloaks and beaded garlands around their necks.
I feel, with awareness in general public; now a days most of these mice are not from shrine. They are those children who might have been kidnapped by gangs of beggars and physically/mentally  distorted by making them micro-cephalic. They are a rich source of income and are even available for rent, if some one wants to take them for begging.

Sitting alone
Self portrait. In the dead of night, sitting alone and meditating on the time passed and on so many people (never to be seen) without whom life seemed impossible once.

It seems some of life's best moments occur at farmer's markets.  They're simply awesome places to visit full of big smiles, and happy people.

'Most people, if you live in a big city, you see some form of schizophrenia every day, and it's always in the form of someone homeless. 'Look at that guy - he's crazy. He looks dangerous.' Well, he's on the streets because of mental illness. He probably had a job and a home. Eric McCormack'

Three very kind hearted young ladies, Seoul,S.Korea
On the left, you may think nothing special, just 3 youngsters walking and sharing an umbrella.
On the right, if you pay close attention to what was in front of them, a man with a heavy loaded carriage and was trying to pull up the hill, when these 3 youngsters saw him, they all helped and pushed from the back.
The kind act was caught on my camera.
So nice to know Kind Acts of Humanity is still existed

Story
Tagline
Social Saturday Daily Photography Theme Page
Introduction
This page is a place to share best of your shots from around the world that you think may inspire for more social awareness. All captures of human condition that make us understand people, feel an empathy with others within different social, cultural, urban and rural environments are welcome. Forgotten people, less fortunate, poverty, the scenes displaying generosity, intimacy, genuinely interest, authenticity, loyalty, relationship, vulnerability, appreciation, anything about people's personal lives or interactions in a society during daily lives, an event or a place or something that makes us feel what is going on and become socially more aware of others' conditions. I'd love to reshare your impressive people photography posts on this page's stream.

The Philosophy
Social awareness is our ability to accurately pick up on emotions in other people and understand what is really going on. Empathy and understanding are most fundamental in it: thinking about the other persons' needs, feelings and perceptions before our own point of view. But researches tell us we're not very good at this any more. Furthermore, too many people want everyone else to conform to their particular ways without understanding others and without acknowledging others' concerns and issues. Social issues are issues which relate to people's personal lives and interactions. Being socially aware helps people take others' situation and needs into account as much as possible. It allows us to adopt some internal stuff to lead to stronger connections in our relations with others. As we improve social awareness we also improve our experience of life. Photography  as a phenomenal art form allowing us to share our experiences, thoughts and emotions with others can be used to help inspire for more social awareness as we can record moments and document scenes of social issues that helps us feel a connection with other human beings in meaningful ways which might not have been possible otherwise. By participating in +Social Saturday Photography Theme Page, you'll have the opportunity to explore socially impressive works of great photographers on your stream. It will make a difference and we will grow both as people as well as photographers.
