Bhil indigenous woman carrying water jugs on her head, Desert
survival, Rajasthan, India.
Bhil women often walk long distances through the desert to bring back
jugs of water that they carry on their heads.
Above and beyond anything
else, water dominates the lives of all who dwell in Rajasthan. In most
of the desert, there has been no rain since the monsoon of 1999. In some
areas, the ground is so salty that wells yield no potable water.
