Construction workers

Madurai

The hard work of getting sand and stones, is mostly done by women and don't forget that after work they still have to cook to please their husband !
They enjoyed being in focus, the main actors for once in their colorful working dresses.

As Tamil women still have a long way to go in the fight for their rights, shoudn't we, o-men in the West, react a bit on the overemancipated world here ? :)))

Taken in a small street in the center of Madurai near the Meenakshi.
Was your house ever build in such a graceful way ? ... enjoy ...
