From The Kerb: The Prostitute


GB Road, Delhi

The prostitutes live above

The edible oil shops are below

Commerce above
Commerce below

Selling bodies above

Selling oil below.

As above, so below…

Dead souls above

What is below?


  1. Dang, this was deep. I didn’t sense any judgement, merely observation and illumination of a situation. The photograph was pensive as well. Great job striking that balance, Rajiv.

  2. I would call the one above as the Wounded and the Dying, and the one below as the Dead one; because this one does not Care. Very Good posting, my Rajiv! Kudos and Regards, as always! …No Smily’s or Likes for this one; Too poignant.
