The tunnel

PHOTO PROMPT © Stephen Baum

“With the monsoons coming in, we need to move back our dwelling inside the tunnel. Otherwise, the rains will destroy our lives.”

The Kumar’s had lived for years on the footpath running across the city’s busiest street. While Ram and his children begged at the nearby traffic signal, his wife – Kanti went from door to door doing the cleaning and the dishes.

Over the years, their life had come under danger both from drivers who ran over footpath dwellers as well as the unrelenting rain. And this is where the tunnel under the newly built flyover came to their rescue.

Written for the photo prompt and you can read the other entries here.
