Terre Solidaire: Calcutta

This is not a legless cripple from Calcutta.
This is a defender of rights of untouchables.
Poorer countries deserve more than our outdated stereotypes.

i don't like the idea of 'poorer country deserving more' support. somewhere i find the conscience being forced on guilt.
Second, to me, it portrays a city who cannot help himself and stands parallel to places wrought. Man, this is the city of joy. I hail from this city koltata and I'm sure the city is full of vibrance and life. None would love the pity mongering line or the depiction of a helpless.
Nice art work though.

Somehow, it sounds too patronizing. And i think this would be much, much better if they had real people in the ads instead of illustrations. It would be so much more effective if we saw a real person crippled because he stood up for something. One just can't warm up to a reality when it's illustrated!


Not all who wander are lost.

I like it. The ad fights against the stereotypes... and the message is clear. It is far more achieved than most of the ads I usually see in magazines.
