Old Women Destitutes and Beggars

These are pictures of old and elderly women who are beggars. They are destitutes, probably abandoned by their family.

This woman was seen outside the Pan Chakki, a tourist site in Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India. She could barely see.

This old woman in a pink shawl was begging for alms outside MacDonald's, a fast-food restaurant near the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. She was squinting at us from behind her thick spectacles and had a slightly puzzled expression on her face.

This is a close-up of the same woman. Her leathery and wrinkled face did not show any emotion as I took her picture.

This elderly woman was on a suburban railway station bridge begging for alms. A one rupee coin is in the tin in front of her. In the background is a two-wheeler parking lot. The woman had a cynical and mistrustful expression on her face although she did not object to me taking the photo.
