Photographer's Note

It is quite common to meet aged woman, in Tamil Nadu in general and Chennai in specific, carrying some items or other (may be vegetable or greens or fish) in a basket or aluminum vessel and selling them after going street by street either in the morning or evening.

They are earning small amount for that day. Their self respect will not allow to be a burden to their sons and would like to stand on their own leg at this age.

I have captured this aged woman while she was returning her home in Chennai. She has sold all the items she carried and her meals are ensured for that day.
