A trunk is used to store clothes and other items. This is a picture that I took during our trip to India in January. Here you can see a trunk of another kind being used for storage.

This is the home of a family that lives on the pavement along a busy road in Chennai. The cloth that the yellow arrow is pointing to is a hammock-like cradle with a baby in it. The members of this family have probably come here from another village for work as labourers in a building project of some sort.

A little later, not far from this “home”, on the same pavement, we saw a little child playing with a piece of concrete. I could see no one in the immediate vicinity of this child. As an outsider who was just passing by, I did not do anything beyond taking a photograph.

Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. Matt 10:29-31
