At the Neighborhood Well, Trivandrum, Kerala

For centuries, neighborhood women have lined up their water pots and waited their turn at the well, either by gossiping with friends or completing other errands while the other women kept the line moving forward. Light plastic pots have replaced the heavy brass or clay pots used for centuries, but the shape remains the same, an ancient design that is easy to carry on the hip, raise to the head, pour from, and maneuver without fear of spilling.
