What can a picture tell us?

| September 5, 2007

This picture was taken on
July 20, 2006 when the heavy raining made the street in flooding.

With heavy rain for these few days and the street were flooding, i remembered the above picture. Though it was taken since 2006, we still can see the same thing in 2007. What can this picture tell us?

Steve Goodman said a picture is worth more than a thousand words. I agreed with him. This single picture presented a fact of government's failure in managing the sewage system ( many analysis pointed beyond the fact of filling up the lakes and new constructions blocked the sewage). What more?

The picture showed a comparison of the poor and the rich. At a glance, the Cyclo driver and Landcruiser driver were both protected from raining while the cyclo driver wearing his raining coat. Though, the comfortability is completely different. Does it show another failure of government in reducing poverty?

What else can you tell from this picture?
