Cutting the Grass

Sarnath, India

Life in India can be difficult. Life in India as a woman can be exceedingly difficult. This woman was working with a dozen other women to cut the grass in front of a government building. Each woman had a hand blade that she scrubbed along the grass, cutting it a handful at a time. Their children were in the field with them, some helping, some too young to do anything but watch their moms work. As hard as the work is in the scorching 100 degree heat, these women are happy to have a job that pays even if it is just a few rupees.
