Water Well - Ajanta (India)

Women congregating around water well.­

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.­
