I was sitting quietly on some steps near the Jagdish Temple in Udaipur when I was moved by this old man. I wondered about him, is he alone in the world? Does he sleep on the streets? Is he hungry? He appeared to be sleeping. Later he was joined by a Sadhu who had clear signs of leprosy on his hands. They sat companionably for some time. I offered them both some chai and samosas hoping it would not cause offense, they accepted with great dignity.
