With Shelter Under Flyovers Gone, Delhi's Homeless Left Out In The Cold
As night temperatures dip to new lows across North India, Delhi's homeless are once again left to fend for themselves. The government's efforts to beautify flyovers in Delhi have further deprived many of the little shelter that they did get. "We used to sleep under the bridge but they drove us out. Now we're sleeping here," said an elderly man sleeping on the curb near the freshly painted IIT flyover in south Delhi. "We have no village, no home, we're just here to earn." Delhi is home to nearly 1 lakh homeless people.
