On my way back to the office after lunch one day, I was shocked to see this woman with a young toddler sleeping on her lap. This was on a busy street in China.
She was picking some food from the garbage bin and eating it!
Pedestrians simply walked past her as if she's transparent. I didn't slow down my foot-steps too, I was in a hurry to return to the office for an important meeting. During the meeting, the disturbing image kept playing over and over in my mind.
After my meeting, I went back to the street, trying to locate the woman. She was nowhere to be found.
That night, while having a steamboat dinner with my partners and staff at a restaurant, I felt very guilty. Here I was, with a big table laden with yummy food. It was more than what we could eat but they were still ordering like no tomorrow. In the end, lots of food was left over.
The image of the woman appeared again.....
Two days later, I spotted the same woman from afar. She was picking food from another garbage bin, I quickly walked towards her. Putting my hands into every pocket, I found a few hundred renminbi (Chinese currency).
I tapped the woman on her shoulder and gave her all my money.
"Stop eating this! Go get yourself and the baby some food."
Suddenly, two young ladies rushed towards me, screaming.......
