Laundry, Kerala, South India

In many parts of South India the person who did the laundry (a dhobi) was a man, but throughout Kerala women take the laundry down to the river and washing stones, where they visit while they work. On a typical summer day before the monsoon, a sari spread out on the rocks or on a line will be thoroughly dry before the woman has finished washing the next sari.
