"We cloak ourselves in cold indifference to the unnecessary suffering of others - even when we cause it." James Carroll

A beggar counting and re-counting his scarce Rupiah in the wet streets of Madurai..... I am not truly comfortable taking photo´s like this, but I feel it is also a part of India that must be acknowledged. The exteme poverty that exists is not something we may ignore, something we may conveniently shut out.
