Man at Work

A labourer's upside down reflection is seen as he works on the banks of the Yamuna river in India's capital Delhi. In Delhi, labourers work for meagre daily wages under an exploitative system where they have to toil from morning to night. Majority of labourers working in Delhi are poor migrants who come from neighbouring states like Bihar and Uttar Pradesh in the hope of better opportunities.
