Woman carrying a sack of potatoes

I was walking along the bank of the Ganga river, when I saw this small woman carrying a huge sack of potatoes on her head! The ground was boiling hot and yet, she was walking on her bare feet with her heavy load on her head without even sweating! Admirably indeed.
