Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil

Whilst I lived in North East Thailand (Isan), I was introduced to this old man, who happens to be deaf, dumb and blind. His only contact with the outside world is through the touch of his hands.

 

Whilst he lived surrounded by 3 generations spawned by him, one could feel his distress and see the utter loneliness in which he existed.

 

Life went on around him, whilst he remained totally oblivious to it. A very touching moment...
