Dhobi hanging clothes, Mumbai

Dhobi's are a caste group of people in India whose primary occupation for many generations is washing other peoples clothes. In rural areas they uses rivers and lakes but in cities there are special built stalls where the washing is done. Then the clothes is spread out to dry,m sometimes on the ground, on trees and bushes and hanging from clothes lines. This area of clothes lines was so cramped and dense, all you can see from above are the dhobi's hands.,
