Across the flyover or expressway from our oldest site and part of the ITO slum dislocation, is Akshardham Temple and Metro Site #4.  This homeless shelter managed by ACORN India is at the juncture of the Akshardham Metro stop, the railway line (on whose property it is located), a city water station and washing station for the poor, and an easy parking and resting place for auto rickshaw drivers. ACORN India's 4 centers are among about 85 that are supported by the Urban Board of the Delhi Government.

Oldest shelter operated by ACORN India and a year ago we were operating it only for the winter in tents for some of our rickshaw drivers and other workers.

Now, like the rest, there is hard siding, solar panels, better restroom facilities etc. We participated in an action today for better electric capacity since the panels hardly power one fan.

The workers come in at the end of their labor, usually around 11 pm and are up and out right after dawn. In the mornings we read the paper out loud.
