Struggle For Water

This picture tells the story of everyday life in a small desert village in Rajasthan where women have to walk several kilometres every day to get water. Dobri, a small village where women walk several times a day for water about 3 kilometres from the village. This is their daily struggle, whether it is a month of rain or scorching sun or bitter cold. When I reached this village, this struggle of the women there and even after so much hard work, the smile on their faces made me forget everything and look life in a new way.
