Price tags

The cost of human dignity comes at such a high price
that so many people cannot afford it, they make do without basic amenities of food/ clothing/ shelter. Decent ones at that.

The homeless of Philadelphia.
The slum dwellers of Mumbai.
And the inhabitants of Penn Station in New York City.
These are ofcourse only few places that I have seen them in.
And is true for most metropolis.

Metropolitan landscapes are magnetic enough to pull throngs of people to it.
For livelihood reasons and others.

But in this process, it also escalates the price of human dignity.
So much so that, it ceases to matter.
