wallah carrying CRT screens on his head - delhi (india)

Wallah (i.­e.­ Indian worker) carrying CRT screens on his head in Delhi (India)

In developing countries, old-style Cathodic Ray Tube (CRT) TV screens are still used, as they are much cheaper than modern flat-screen LCD displays.­ With cheap labor, CRT can be refurbished and re-used.­

Those are refurbished CRT tubes near an Electronics market in Delhi.­

For more info on CRT tubes, read en.­wikipedia.­org/­wiki/­Cathode_­ray_­tube.
