This is Safur Jaan, her home town is Sylhet. She is over a 100 years old. Her husband died, she is staying in Dhaka with her son. She is begging on the street. This old lady is demented, living on the street, just one second of recognizing the world outside her, and than she disappeared again. She calls herself the mother of everybody. I came back several times, because she deserves a good photo and the world should know that they produce a reality in which people with alzheimer live on the street. By Ronald Van Merkesteijn
