Misfortune

A couple begs from passers by in a street in Jaipur, the man obviously suffering from serious health problems. Many health conditions go untreated among India's poorest. It is common to see people with diseases that are seldom, if ever, seen in more wealthy countries. To a traveller unaccustomed to such sights, this aspect of India can be very difficult to deal with emotionally, especially at first.
