Caption:

A Bhil woman washes the dishes using sand. In the Rajasthan desert, people are suffering from severe drought. There has been no rain since the monsoon of 1999. Women must walk up to 2km to the village well to fill up water jugs that they carry back on their head. Water is only used to drink and wash one's hands and face a couple of times a day.

Barjarsar, Rajasthan desert, India.
