Wrinkles of independence

Ladies can be seen working as labour, hawker, carrying heavy burdens on their shoulder... Even at old age. I really respect the ladies there where they earn a living by themselves, independently, without depending on the men in their family. This old lady was selling candle in a paper cup for people to make wishes and let it float on the water.
