JAN 1, 12 .. GOA .. ARAMBOL BEACH ..

Down below in December 27, 2011 .. I show you some photos of some special shops here in Arambol Beach .. some of my favorites .. 


I had NOT taken a photo of another of my favorites because it so DEEPLY TOUCHES ME.. but today.. January the 1st.. the shop and I were in 'synch' and I shot the below photos .. FIRST look straight into the shop and notice the stairs in the back .. these stairs lead up to a home or a room .. a place people are living .. a very ELDERLY lady attends this MODEST tiny shop fashioned together at the bottom of her stairs with bamboo poles and tarps .. and she seems to be SCRATCHING OUT A MODEST LIVING .. selling very few items.. I strive to give her my business when I can .. I mean she has NO inventory .. just a few little tid-bits of snacks ..
This photo looks at the side of her tiny little shop .. in the below photo.. on the right side of it.. look closely and you will see the stairs leading up to a room .. I mean this tiny little 'shop' is hodge-podge patched together with gum and masking tape IF that ..
The little boy seems to be a grandson .. I have not the nerve to ask her any questions about her little shop .. I just smile at her and give her what business I can .. 
Maybe I can talk to her and ask her IF it is her shop .. IF it is .. I am tempted to slip her a thousand rupees .. whew !  .. this scene is played out daily all over India .. little people scratching out a living however and where ever they are able .. study the look on the face of the little boy .. I mean he IS SERIOUS about what it is he is doing .. the little boy seems to be 'playing' as children will do.. making up a game as he goes along .. or maybe he is oh-so-very carefully 'organizing' the soda bottles hoping it will help to sell just one .. I will utter it again .. whew ! .. notice at his feet .. a 'soda bottle' just beside the tiny display case .. this is an EMPTY water bottle filled with gasoline to sell to motor scooter owners who need a 'fill up' .. whew ! .. I will NOT say this is what I love about India .. I WILL SAY THIS .. scenes like this are what SO DEEPLY TOUCH MY SOUL here in India ..
