About Tulsi leaves
cimum tenuiflorum, Holy Basil (also tulsi, tulasī), is an aromatic plant in the family Lamiaceae which is native throughout the Old World tropics and widespread as a cultivated plant and an escaped weed. It is an erect, much branched subshrub, 30–60 cm tall with hairy stems and simple, opposite, green leaves that are strongly scented. Leaves have petioles, and are ovate, up to 5 cm long, usually slightly toothed. The flowers are purplish in elongate racemes in close whorls. The two main morphotypes cultivated in India and Nepal are green-leaved (Sri or Lakshmi tulsi) and purple-leaved (Krishna tulsi).
Tulsi is cultivated for religious and medicinal purposes, and for its essential oil. It is widely known across South Asia as a medicinal plant and an herbal tea, commonly used in Ayurveda, and has an important role within the Vaishnavite tradition of Hinduism, in which devotees perform worship involving tulsi plants or leaves.

The lady is well placed in the image and her expression over her work is well caught. The colorful background in writings adds to the image. I like the tight framing here.
Have a nice day

great and lovely daily life scene. you've caught the action well. excellent time recording and display of beautiful colors. also thx for your informal note, in my country we know and use rarely Ocimum basilicum in our meals. this one is in the same family with tulsi. tulsi is also known and using for the same things as you've informed. congrats and thanks for all :)
have a great week,

I really like the textured printers moire pattern on the bg rickshaw. The woman intent on her work animates the scene and the color & sharpness are excellent. The bottle of water at far right lets us know this is thirsty work! Tfs!
