The Wider Image: In old Bangkok, a goddess resists a wave of gentrification 
Penprapa Ployseesuay 'Nok', Chao Mae Thap Thim shrine's caretaker, prepares dinner at the back of the temple where she lives in a small house with her mother and two sons in Bangkok, Thailand, November 24, 2020. Bangkok's Chulalongkorn University, which owns the land, plans to construct two residential buildings in the place of the shrine despite protests from its own students. "Sooner or later they will cut the water supply and electricity," said Penprapa. "I feel very sad. They don't see the importance and value of this place that deserves to be preserved," she said of the university. "They chose not to make the two worlds live together," she added. "They only want us to get out." REUTERS/Jorge Silva SEARCH "GENTRIFICATION SILVA" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES
