Post Script To The Sarees

This picture was originally taken to show how blessed you could be in India to have a place to hang out your sarees. It had been raining that day and we were up in a building checking out a new apartment for the young missionaries. From their balcony these beautiful sarees caught my eye but as I held the camera up I saw lots of movement in the river bed. Across and off to the right is a small neighborhood of thatched homes. Under the bridge and in the middle you can just make out a cluster of women seeking shelter, but up closer are a few brave souls doing their wash in an almost river. This was a couple of weeks before more rain arrived in the form of the cyclone.
