Midweek Portrait Gallery

Life in the That desert in Rajasthan/India is not easy,especially for women .They have to care for the children,work on the fields,carry water from the well ( if one exits) or from the local johad ( a traditional water reservoir), collecting firewood and so much more.Only 52 % of women can read or write (but 80% of the men in Rajasthan.) This woman was on her way home after a day of working in the small fields which surrounded the village.
