Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya:Ujwala Devi, 38, from Uttar Pradesh, has been living on the pavement near gate number 2 of AIIMS Metro station for the last couple of days. She’s accompanying her 45-year-old husband, who is waiting for an appointment to undergo a cataract operation at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

They arrived in the Capital last week but couldn’t find a place in the night shelters they tried getting into. So, they decided to live in the open near the hospital. At the chilled nights, the couple sleep in a recently opened subway in the vicinity.
