Mother Teresa
In the men's ward at the hospice, the brothers bathe a dying man.
Throngs of beggars, students, tourists and passersby crowd the ancient streets of the Kalighat section of Calcutta. It is here that the destitute of India come to die, for devout Hindus wish to be cremated on the gluts (steps) of the sacred Hooghly River. Howrah, the old railroad station, is littered with the bodies of those who spent their last strength to get here.
