(best seen in original size)From my India Archives
I have always avoided taking pics of beggars and panhandlers in India (or elsewhere)
but for a few and this one is an exception. It disturbed and shook me.
I just froze for a few seconds. It was taken at wee hours of the morning
somewhere in an isolated part of the banks of our holy river Mother Ganges
in the holiest of the holy city of Hindus, the adobe of Shiva.

other sizes: small medium large original auto
