A hut constructed by evicted families


Evicted families sleep in makeshift huts constructed from straw and bamboo


Older children baby-sitting their younger siblings sleeping in cribs made of sarees



Temporary shelters created by evicted families


Debris from demolished homes being used to build new temporary structures


An upturned and broken dining table, a pot over an open flame - remains of a kitchen


Even a baby can sense that his world has turned upside down


Older children draw comfort in the company of friends


A morsel of bread is a rare treat for these starving children



A woman fetches water for her family


Another woman goes about her daily chores



Evicted families piecing together their shattered lives


Nothing is left standing on the site where once was a thriving village
