Collecting firewood, originally uploaded by bag_lady.

In a rural area outside Bhuj in the west of Gujerat, known as the Kutch area. The women in the rural areas go out at the end of the day to collect bundles of firewood for the evenings' cooking. They often walk a long way with these bundles on their heads, smiling cheerfully and gossiping. I tried to lift one of these bundles once and it is incredibly heavy.
