Road next to the village of Ramdas Ghosai Masali Konnare, Bihar, India, October 2007.

The old woman and her community of eighty families have been living along the road for more than three months after the floods in Bihar. They are unaware of any right to relief material. Some road workers gave her the black sheet of plastic as cover for the rain, but she sleeps on the cold and wet concrete.
