Tasleen, 26, the gas-affected mother of Zubin, 3, is trying to soothe her child's suffering by offering love and care while she lies on her lap inside their home in an impoverished area of Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, near the former Union Carbide industrial complex.

Zubin was born healthy but developed severe physical and neurological deficiencies in her early childhood, a symptom believed to be connected to consuming contaminated water.
