Beautiful India on Instagram vs Broken India in Real Life
‘Beautiful India’ on Instagram vs ‘Broken India‘ in real life is a unique photo series created by Limitless in order to raise awareness about life in the Indian subcontinent and its major discrepancies between social classes.
India is the second largest country in the world by population and with approximately 1.252 billion people you can imagine that a lot of problems will appear. Most of the people in India live in extreme poverty because wealth is unequally distributed (like in most countries). Another problem facing the Asian country is its cast system which separates people and divides them in social classes from which they can never get out.
‘Beautiful India’ is about showing the beautiful part of the country by cropping Instagram pictures and revealing only what is pleasant to the eye. ‘Broken India’ is everything else that remains unseen.
With this unique series of photos, the people at Limitless are trying to raise awareness on vital issues concerning India’s society and they hope to generate a national debate on what should be done in order to fix the country’s many issues.
Life in India is hard for most of its people and this should stop as soon as possible. Don’t think of India as an isolated case, because this is happening in other parts of the world as well and with time, it could affect even your own country or region. We should see the real problems behind those beautiful pictures on Instagram and always have in mind that we can help, not just be bystanders.
Let’s make ‘Broken India’ beautiful too!
