Burma (also known as Myanmar) appears to be on a fast track toward openness and democratization, after decades of harsh military rule that left it one of the least-developed countries in the world. Although the military still holds most of the power, President Thein Sein's new civilian government continues to pursue a broad campaign of political and economic reform, reconciliation, and engagement with the rest of the world. In January of 2012, more than 20 years after withdrawing its ambassador, the United States restored diplomatic relations with Burma. But with change comes challenge, especially for a nation mired in poverty and ongoing sectarian disputes. Collected here are recent scenes from Burma as its people struggle to emerge from 50 years of oppression.

Addiction is fast becoming a major health issue in India. Some estimates indicate that as many as 15 million people in India are addicts. In a recent report by the UN Drug Control program, approximately 45% of those seeking treatment in New Delhi were heroin addicts while 26% of those encountered were alcoholics.
India harvests the largest legally grown crop of opium in the world while it also has a long history of drug use. Opium is widely used by several Hindu religious groups. *Heroin addiction became a problem when local drug cartels linked to international syndicates decided to create a domestic market for heroin in the 80's. When drug production increased in the area commonly known as the 'Golden Crescent' - overlapping Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan - peddlers started using Pakistan and India as transit points*.
