Construction workers


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 ...
