Beggars

Here are some pictures of beggars, I took at general bus stand Swabi. The first two men are heroin addicts. The first man was a peon in Deputy Commissioner office Swabi. But after being a prey to the heroin, he left the job and started begging. The 2nd man is also a heroin addict. They get a large portion of their income from women, by deceiving them with their sad stories and prayers.
