My heart is torn between East and West. I live somewhere between the present and the past. I don't know who I am.


Just another human being biding their time on this earth. Passionate about current affairs, history, politics (particularly MENA region), religion, cute animals and food.

Little Boy, Chicken, and Cross of Straw, Luotiancun village, near Nanchang, China

 "I had attended my friend’s wedding in Nanchang, central China. The next day, a friend and I ventured into the countryside, and after riding a series of ever-smaller buses, we wound up in a village called Luotiancun, where the locals were harvesting rice and burning the fields. 

 As his family worked, this young boy watched me silently and earnestly. A chicken wandered past, disinterested.

The rice fields were burning just beyond us, thick with white smoke.”

Human amongst wires, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I took this in March in one of Rio de Janeiro’s largest favelas. I barely saw the boy at first among the wires and chaos. To me, he represents the human side of urbanity.”

This is from the New York times photo series “Battle for Libya”. Here a boy flashed a victory sign as he mourned his relative, a rebel fighter killed during a battle, at the funeral in Misurata.

This just makes me want to cry, when will all the injustice end?

"Haiti is a tragic place in need of help. This image was taken before the recent earthquake. I hope this young boy was unharmed, although I can’t help feeling that his life may be full of struggle"
