Behind hospital (D.G. Samsan & N. Prokasham)

This photo is of adults and children standing behind the Deverakonda hospital. Two men are identified as D.G. Samsan and N. Prakasham are preaching. [The missionary involvement among the lower caste people in India was significant. That "high" people (missionaries) would associate with the lower caste was unusual. The missionaries educated the people which allowed them to have more occupational choices which provided them social mobility, out of their low caste and into a higher caste. The high caste people generally have more clothes on. The indigenous preachers were educated by the missionaries, and paid for their preaching and teaching work. They gained a new respectability via their education, and vocation so that in this photo they are wearing long clothes and even a hat.]
