From Reddit: I look at this picture whenever I think life has been unfair to me 


I look at this picture whenever I think life has been unfair to me from pics

Some back story of the image:

This photograph was taken in India, by Gautam Basu, and won CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year in 2011.

The area they are in is referred to as the ‘Pipe Slum’ and are old pipes that were discarded by the city after the completion of a water project. The rest of the slum is made up of ramshackle shanties that are built over and around the pipes. The area is also home to a number of children attending a nearby compassion project.

Like India, Manila in the Philippines also has homeless people and families living in similar concrete and steel pipes. These steel pipes were intented to be used by the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) on the construction of a water system. News article http://i.imgur.com/0q2qmUs.jpg http://i.imgur.com/XcEwBKS.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ShmbTPP.jpg http://i.imgur.com/YSuCSHV.jpg
