Washing Man

Man washing in river

The man was sitting on the edge of the water

Shot in the city of Kolkata, India.

A man who was stripped to the waist was sitting on the riverbank of the Hooghly river. He was slamming clothes on the ground again and again. He seemed to wash clothes.

What he washed were not only clothes. Look closely, there were also a toothbrush and a dish beside him. He was washing not only garments, but also his teeth and belongings. This place was his water place for his domestic cares. Anyway, it was uncommon to see men washing here. It might be thought as a women's work here.
