Some women wearing saree worked on the edge of the water of the Mahananda River. They were doing the laundry there. The place became a washhouse. Because many women came here to wash, it was still uncommon to have any washing machine in their home.

The women were sitting in front of the big stones and hitting the clothes again and again. I wondered whether the clothes became clean because the water seemed to be unclean.
