Pure sweetness
Pure sweetness
I took this shot (as a total noob, and with a non good camera, but that's not the point here :D) back then in 2009, in the best travel I could ever had in my life, to India.
This was a poor indian woman, her eyes, her sweetness and somehow her happy way of looking will be always on my heart.
Just something I felt like sharing with you all :)

Deepti Munshaw commented on October 25, 2011 11:03am
that's so nice of you say, Carina! Thank you with all my heart!! :)
Deepti Munshaw commented on October 25, 2011 11:04am
how do u draw 'heart' here... I tried but didn't work! lol!!!
Catru commented on October 25, 2011 11:06am
ohhh :D ok, this goes for Shawn and Deepti :D
I make hearts: holding ALT key, and pressing number 3 (from the numerical pad)
Deepti Munshaw commented on October 25, 2011 11:08am
i have a mac... i held 'option' & pressed 3, but got this '£'!! lol
Deepti Munshaw commented on October 25, 2011 11:09am
tell me the long way! :D
Catru commented on October 25, 2011 11:25am
it seems that long path for Mac, is: command+option+t
(it will open a character window, type heart inthere, and select one... then, press insert) ... tell me if it works :D

Great capture Carina :-))
Catru commented on October 25, 2011 7:48pm
thank you Tony!!! ♥
Catru commented on October 25, 2011 7:51pm
I must add, that usually, in my country, when you look a poor person, it won't look at you in a sweet, kinda happy way. It was a nice shock to me to see indian poor people, they are really really in a worse situation... and still.... they look with contentment. Hard to say with words.
ritz commented on October 25, 2011 10:05pm
and this is India.... People are happy what the situation may be...people always welcome you with smile....they can stay hungry by giving their food to their guest...people of India are reachest people of the world...because they are not unhappy.
Catherine Holcombe commented on October 26, 2011 12:15am
Wow Carina, thank you for this beautiful post! It warms my heart! Truly there are people in the world(such as yourself) who understand what is truly important! Where we live it is hard to find.
Catru commented on October 26, 2011 4:52am
Ritz, you are from or in India too?? :D and I totally agree ♥
Catru commented on October 26, 2011 4:54am
awww Catherine, thank you so much, so happy is a warming share!!! (and again, I'm blushed, thank you :#D)
Olivia Joy StClaire commented on October 26, 2011 5:30am
She's looking pretty rich to me - looks like she has everything that is important right in her arms! Wonderful catch Carina. ♥
Janine Shroff commented on October 26, 2011 6:13am
ritz - i think you are clearly NOT from india. (sorry)
I'm an indian and your statement is very idealized and completely untrue. (again sorry)
Indians are hospitable and friendly, but thats not the same as being 'not unhappy'
Catru commented on October 26, 2011 6:14am
thank you Joy!! :) :)
Catru commented on October 26, 2011 6:24am
Unhappiness, now, is a global issue, as we (whole mankind) need to get back to our spiritual path. So, tough moments for everyone on the planet. But, I guess, If I had to put words for what I felt in India, would be like there is way of perceiving God as Love, and some things like devotion and surrender seemed to me, more natural to indians, plus sweetness is something easy to find there :D :)
Deepti Munshaw commented on October 26, 2011 10:43am
Interesting discussion going on here...! :)) I completely agree with Joy! She looks pretty rich, as she has everything that is important right in her arms! I believe that outside world is nothing but a reflection of our inner world. You see sweetness & beauty everywhere (am sure you'll see it in 'any' country) because that is what YOU have inside.. & that's what you truly are! ♥ :))
Catru commented on October 26, 2011 10:49am

ritz commented on October 27, 2011 11:40pm
