    Police spokesman Surendra Srivastava said Thursday that at least 114 people have died from the recent cold in the state of Uttar Pradesh. Many were poor people whose bodies were found on sidewalks or in parks.

    We had our 1st death from exposure about 2 weeks ago. We started a collection of coats and blankets for the homeless. Peoples generosity is always amazing to me.
