Desi Siesta

One way to beat the heat these days is with an afternoon nap. Although the demands of the 24 hour global economy are transforming the institution of the traditional Indian siesta, many people still find a way to snooze away the hottest hours of the day...bed, or no bed. This is a sad sight, but in a city in which 60% of the population lives in shanty huts or roadside shacks, it's an unfortunately common one.
