River Is A Bath House

People washing in river

Some locals were seen washing their body in the river

Shot in the city of Kolkata, India.

I didn't know whether they had a bath in their houses or not. Seemingly, they didn't have. Because I saw many people bathing in the river when I came to a riverside. It might be common to come to the Hooghly River and take a bath here. So the riverbank looked like a public bath.

Yet it was a far-fetched story to take a hot shower here. Hot shower is a necessary thing for me. However, it was not a necessary thing for the locals because of the hotness.
