boys - and friends – diving in the Krishna River,
climbing and balancing on the dam’s edge; “surfing” through
shallow water washing over slippery moss-coated
concrete; swimming and floating on the river’s
surface - blue plastic sandals still intact…Two
young men enjoying the coolness of a river on a hot summer
morning…Two young men – and friends – who
actually LIVE here!
Siddhu and Mahesh are part of a vast
culture of street children who left their homes to wander
and inhabit riverbeds and railway stations throughout India
and…they are at
high risk for HIV infection.
