"During the the Partition of India, Muslim refugees, evacuated from areas of unrest in New Delhi, line up for water with any type of container at Purana Qila, the old fort, in New Delhi, India, on September 17, 1947. This is the only water tap within the camp, where it takes anywhere from one to three hours to get water. There were an estimated 20,000 people at this refugee camp with little food or water and just the barest of housing facilities. The people here do not know what plans their government has for them or how long they will stay."
