This photograph was taken on November 22, 2015 in the small village of Senthal in Northern India.

It shows a cluster of haphazardly packed shanties offering a meagre housing support to large families living in squalor and scarcity. These one room shacks are built of clay, bricks and plastic sheets, each accommodating a family of 7-8 members, of which majority are children. The earning of the residents comes usually from the seasonal employment in agricultural farms and from daily wage labour.
