Hardship in the streets of Varanasi (India)

Look at the face of the old woman, who passes by in a second, who apparantly knows no old age, no security, no rest and perhaps no appreciation, the loads shared between animal and woman according to capability. Can we imagine life on the forbidding streets of our nice pictures? From our celebrated frozen seconds to a lifetime?

Varanasi (Benares), India.
