Laundry Day (Everyday) In Varanasi

The Ganges River in Varanasi can clean everything. Bring your soul, your beliefs, bathe, cleanse and be blessed. Then get back to the mundane and clean your clothes.

These three guys are paid laundry workers. A stone, some water and soap, and you're in business. You provide the shoulder grease.


A woman hanging saris. On second thought, will my clothes be cleaner or dirtier?

More saris laid out to dry, creating a staircase rainbow. Beautiful!


The full array of laundry drying. Sheets, saris, jeans, no wonder the man in the center is taking a break. Two women being their own clothesline.
