Ramadan, Tea Stalls, and Restaurants

During the Holy Month of Ramadan most tea stalls and restaurants hang tarps for privacy for those that need to eat and drink. Rickshaw Wallahs work hard and need their energy, and there are people of other religions that do not fast during this time.

Poor But With a Sweet Smile

This young girl is a rag-picker.  She goes out every morning to collect recyclable items such as paper and plastic to sell.  The rag-pickers typically are carrying a big burlap bag which hopefully gets filled!
