At the Water's Edge

Moving onward, our driver took us to the outskirts of a village where women were drawing water out of a well. Balancing two pots of water on their heads, the women then proceeded towards the village. Even a little girl worked at carrying a bucket on her head. With a golden light of the late afternoon sun, the women in their brightly colored Ghanghara skirts, choli blouses, and odhni shawl, were stunning. Walking tall, they went past men resting in the shade. Other women were busy washing clothes at the water’s edge.
