Two 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.
