Photographer's Note

This is taken from Gangaur Ghat, from my routine early morning photo walk just to get a feel and sample a bit of the sights. It is quite a beautiful little old city and peaceful with small meandering alley-ways and of course the famous ghats that come with it. Interestingly wherever you find water in India, you are bound to find people washing clothes or themselves in it.

As Udaipur is situated right beside the huge Lake Pichola that runs through the old city, you will find both customs being practiced, and everyday seems like washing day to them. Each woman comes balancing her tub of washing on her head and brings with her a wooden paddle of sorts with which she will pound the dirt from the clothes during the washing.

A normal way of life perhaps but what a visual treat they have presented me .....
