I’m not really sure and I do not want to disrespect anyone, but I’m not sure if this man or many of the men I’ve seen scattered across India are sleeping or dead. The reason I say that Is because most of them are in poor condition and or sleeping in the most interesting and unexpected places such as intersection medians, on fountain walls, on the pavement, under cars? Yes, all very true. I think there is a skill and an art form to it. The other side of the answer a local man told me is that most of them work very hard labor jobs so when they are ready to sleep they can sleep anywhere and most of the ones you see sleeping in uncommon spots are homeless. So he said.
My bed for the next five days in the Bologna countryside hostel.
