homELearning Activity 2 (S1-09: Rayner Tan Xue Wen)

The focus is the contrast between the rickshaw puller and his modern surroundings. This is because the rickshaw is a very old and traditional way of transport while surrounding him are motorbike and taxis which is a very modern way of transport. I think the story behind it is about this indian rickshaw puller being poor and working for his life and never giving up. I think this photographer is trying to tell people that in the world, many people are getting richer and technology is advancing very quickly. But we leave some people, like the rickshaw puller, behind along with the old traditional ways and they are having a hard time surviving.
