Once during a flood, I was stuck in the middle of traffic jam, all cars had stalled due to water, it was raining very hard - I noticed a small 3 feet high makeshift tent made of plastic on the footpath, there was man lying on a small cot just above water level - he was looking at all of us and smiling - because he was safe in his home and we were stuck far from home. there was such contentment on his face - that I understood the term that poverty is in the eyes of the beholder. Have you ever experienced such contentment?
