The main sport for the masses in Delhi is finding a place to live. Obviously space is limited in the city and is mostly owned. So space means money.
This lady sitting there with her infant child was probably collecting donations and the contrast on the background of a global top brand proves her point and also makes a conceptual photo.
In the city, it is all about location image and status. Maybe that is why both the begging lady and the security officer, representing the store, are in a conflict. He was just rushing her off what is public property but right in front of the polished Puma store.
In the villages, on the other hand, space is abundant, life is slower and much more peaceful and people are more compassionate.
Because rural villages and towns in India are not a international financial centers, I found hardly any beggars while traveling many of these across India. There's no business for beggars waiting for a giving or, on the other side of the scale, for thieves waiting for a catch.
