Disabled Beggars

These are photographs of disabled beggars from India.Beggars in India are not as poor as they appear to be. They live poorly and sadly but often have money, often stashed in the form cash either in a bank of in their pockets.

The first image is of two disabled beggars in a market in Hyderabad's old city. The man who is standing is blind and the man who is bent forward appears to be stricken by polio.
