The Cost of Beautification: Taking cues from the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the Indian government is determined to show a vibrant, clean, and modern face to the world. But the "sprucing up" comes at a clear human cost: Almost half of the city's homeless shelters have been destroyed in order to clean up the city and clear room for infrastructure, putting over 100,000 onto the streets in the middle of winter. The razing of slums has added to the number of homeless, and dozens have died from exposure to the cold, literally freezing to death. Above, a woman cooks dinner outside her makeshift home on Feb. 3.
