Penury

Posted on: May 24, 2008

penury
\PEN-yuh-ree\ | noun

1 : a cramping and oppressive lack of resources (as money); especially : severe poverty
2 : extreme frugality

The first link is a small publishing company that looks like someone started at first to publish their own book and now have branched into doing more. Starting small and growing slowly. The site needs a bit of work but good for them for giving it a go.

The first image is of an Indian woman living in poverty.

She made the news because she was once married to a British anthropologist. Apparently this “upstanding” citizen married her when she was just 13 years old and he was nearly 40, then divorced her ten years later and left her poverty stricken. I admit this is from a very quick skim of the article but I think I got the gist. I hope he’s not considered a respectable person in England.
