Poonam revels in the rain as it dispels the unbearable August heat in her impoverished neighborhood in Bhopal, India. Bhopal was the site of a 1984 gas leak from a Union Carbide pesticide manufacturing plant, often cited as the world's worst industrial disaster. Thousands died as a result and thousands more suffered long-term health impacts. A photograph for those with a conscience, a portion of the proceeds for each photo sold is donated to the American Red Cross to help with the Hurricane Sandy relief effort.
