Caption:

For her morning bath, a Bhil woman is washing her hands and face with a single cup of water. People living in the Rajasthan desert cannot waste water. Women must walk up to 2km to fill up water jugs that they must carry back on their heads. One or two pots of water have to suffice for the consumption of the entire family.

Barjarsar, Rajasthan desert, India.
