Water Well - Ajanta (India)
Young girls and women are standing on slippery rocks at the edge of the 60-feet deep water-well, barefoot or wearing flip-flops. They use buckets attached to long ropes to get drinking water. There is no running water in the village, and this well is the only source of clean water.
