A woman carries her son outside her home at a village in Bundelkhand's Lalitpur district. In Lalitpur, almost all children are malnourished.
An old woman looks on her ill grandson in Uttar Pradesh's Bundelkhand. According to the Global Nutrition Report published recently, India accounts for 25.5 million children who are wasted.

The Dhasan, one of the tributaries of the Betwa, has gone completely dry.
Before it died of hunger and thirst, this cow was abandoned by its owners in Nainwari village, Tikamgarh, as they couldn’t feed it. Water bodies have dried up and there is little vegetation to provide for fodder.
With no farming to be done, a villager sits through the despair while his plough lies unused.
At the only handpump in a village in Tikamgarh district, utensils are lined up in a queue while children and women wait.
All trees in the Heerapur jungle in Palera are dead and only their skeletons are seen.
