A Land of Contrasts

I took this photo in Mumbai, India as I was walking towards a famous mosque. The walkway towards this historic mosque is lined with beggars, a truly tragic aspect of life in India. This man had his arm amputated as a child and has been begging ever since. In the background the massive skyscrapers loom overhead, but life on the ground has not changed.
