Prayers... That's all I've got...

Biren Brahmbhatt

Ahmedabad, India

Artist's Description

In India, there are Sadhus… and there are beggars… But there is a third kind which does not fit into “Sadhu” and neither belongs to “Beggars”…

This elderly man is of this third kind… He does not have anything to say “it’s mine”… except the beaded string he holds in his hands and prays…

That’s all he’s got… Prayers…

Who knows what he was as a child, someone’s son… What he was a boy, someone’s brother and buddy… What he was as a man, a husband, maybe a father…

He is a living story that no one knows… or no one cares to know…

But one thing is known… He’s got prayers… lots of prayers… and that’s all he’s got…
