Beggars are a common sight in front of temples, churches and mosques in India. You can find more than half of total population of beggars here. I sometimes wonder what makes the physically and mentally fit people to beg. She seemed so fine to me. But then I shelled out some money for she willingly posed for me.

I spotted her in front of Chowdeshwari Temple, Sigandur in north Karnataka.

  • Well said. Nice portrait.

  • True, she looks perfectly fit, can’t believe she is a beggar. I thought she is a crafts seller.

  • I like your whole cycle. People’s faces are incredible. Beautifull and telling. Not only eyes – all the features. You just have to stop for a moment.

  • This is very particular blog post! We are travel bloggers too, so we are interested in reading these kind of articles. We think that this is an original way to convey a message 🙂

  • Sounds very interesting I have to keep up with your blog to read about your travels.

  • Didn’t realize she’s a beggar. The faces of the people are incredible. Great shot!

  • Beggars has become I problem where I live. Every time I go to the grocery store they have at least one walking around in the parking lot. I never understood why they just get government support instead of begging.
