Walk For Water

Mumbai, India: Women from various villages carry steel pots on their heads

Rainbowed women

walk with stoic gait

on their daily trek

to the community well

 

Such routine

affords social chit-chat,

masks the tedium

of the weighted walk

 

in a place

which can construct

an ornate church to a foreign god

but not install running water
