Scenes from the Ameya Road

The poverty of our century is unlike that of any other.

It is not, as poverty was before, the result of natural scarcity,

but of a set of priorities imposed upon the rest of the world by the rich.

Consequently, the modern poor are not pitied…

but written off as trash.

The 20th – century consumer economy has produced the first culture

for which a beggar is a remind of nothing.
