Faces of India – 238
Faces of India,
a series through which I intend to portray the various characters of my country whom I met during my travels. See more here…
Woman washing clothes – A typical village scene. I just couldn’t move on without framing it, seemed so perfect setting for my faces of India series. When I asked her how come you are washing clothes here? She replied – water comes for a limited period. Who will carry water all the way to home and then wash there? Better to finish of the job at the source itself. She sounded so wise and I felt so stupid asking her that question.
To make up for that I showed her this on my camera view screen. She seemed pleased. And assuming I would put it up in some paper or magazine she asked me to mention “non stop supply of water would be helpful to people here.” I met her in a village called Guptipara in West Bengal.
