Riddles for Rupees, by Kim Yarmuch

Riddles for Rupees

“On day 1 in Mumbai the first child came to the cab window, a young boy of about 8.  Uncomfortable and emotional doesn’t even begin to describe how I felt,” Kim writes on her website. “I tried to do what you’re generally encouraged to do, to ignore them and not give any money, because begging is a business and all other manner of badness. But I find it hard to outright ignore any human being requesting my attention, let alone a child.” View and hear Kim’s stories of encountering begging children in India, and what she learned from these encounters.
