India, Lifestyle, People

A Scene of a dhobi washing clothes in Adyaru (the river which is now become almost a sewer), couple of things crossing my mind.

a) The water is not proper for cleaning anything, but still they are forced to wash their/ others clothes here.

b) The livelihood for these BPL (fancy terminology by the govt. for Below Poverty Line) families depends on trying to meet ends for even one square meal for all in their family, everyday.

c) Personal hygiene takes a toll

d) Kids are doing household chores, while they should be in school.

But the work undertaken by certain NGO’s to create night schools for these kids & impress the elders on personal hygiene etc. should be done in a mass scale and by every one of us.
