They are village housewives, returning home from the field.
Every day they carry food for their husbands to the field and have lunch together.
At dusk, they come home to prepare food, to look after the children and savor their daily doses of television programs.
They are poor, they are laborious. But they are simple, they are happy … the village housewives.

This is a very ordinary view but you have compoed it well by placing the women in the foreground and capturing the boy on the bike halfway up to the village. These people give very good depth to the view. There is a refinement of the colours that I fully enjoy. The green saree captures the tones of the trees and the grass, whereas her friend's orange saree has a few matches here and there among the nearest houses. The quiet late afternoon atmosphere is also very pleasant.

This is a beautiful picture with the two ladies perfectly positioned. The road with the small boy on the bicycle, the dog and the people in the distance give wonderful depth. The green saree with the green foliage above and in the distance makes a beautiful triangle. Thanks for sharing.

This is a very charming scene from a truly off-the-beaten-path place. The women's clothes have very cheerful colors.

A very nice documentary image, showing the lives of these people in a very real and very colorful way. The one thing that strikes me most is your note to say they are poor, but they are happy as this so often seems to be the case around the world. Material wealth does not always bring much happiness, and your post is testament to that fact. This is a very real and very appealing candid street image, I like this a lot.
All the best

Hello Alekhya - Your note fleshes out the background to this DL shot and helps me to envision the lifestyle of these colourfully clad ladies. The colour contrasts between the greens and oranges give visual oomph to this simple scene. Warm regards rosemary

Fantastic shot from rural Bengal.
I hope that the color in their sarees is not the only color left in their life. They do back breaking work all day long, good they have television now to unwind. The road and the people in the distance provide good depth to the composition.
The colorful attire of the ladies and the lush green trees liven your photo. I also like the motion you have captured in their walk.

A wonderful rural scene, a real daily life observed first hand with the ladies, being the main focal in their vivid color add so much to uplift this shot. There is enough detail and depth to explore throughout the frame with interesting backdrop and lead in. Sounds like you've had some amazing experiences there and this picture represents just one of those moments. I like the composition, the light and the colours are beautiful. Well done, tfs

Hard daily of a village in west bengal, no shoes, the only entertainment for people is cinema, a water tank on the right existing in many villages of the subcontinent, often located nearby temples, bright colors of the saris, deep field of vision, good evening

And also they work hard, at the fields , carring water and preparing food
Like this daily life capture with color contrast of sari and vegetation and the good POV of the street going far till the back
The presence of the child at the bike and a dog is charming
Very well done

this is such a fine piece of rural street photography with the ladies making their way into the scene whilst the boy on the bike heads towards us.
The colourful picture has a fine depth and many interesting features to enjoy.
Best regards Les.

A simple and very authentic daily scene! The women are perfectly placed and their saree catch our eye. Then, people riding bikes, the dogs in the street... so much life going on in the village.
