Photographer's Note

The ladies will stop at regular intervals for chai. I forgot my wallet in my rush to meet them...That and I was half asleep! They kindly bought my share...(several times!)

These women leave the tekra at 5:00am to reach CG Road (a shopping district) at 5:30am to collect rags - many of them will work until 4:00pm, whilst others will leave at noon to attend to household duties. They will collect anything from newspaper, cardboard and polythene water pouches.

This lady was embarrassed to have her picture taken because she chews gutka (tobacco) and her teeth are in a very bad way... a real shame...she is quite stunning.
