Rituparna Banerjee: Chemical Prisoners

A desperate situation in Delhi

“Yamuna Bazaar in Delhi is not an easily visible neighbourhood. A walk into these very spaces reveals a grim reality. Vials of familiar anti-allergic medication, syringes and needles lie littered about in the dirt; huddles of small groups of men, women and children with their backs to you; their decaying bodies and reddened eyes, are a clear giveaway.”
