Title:

Bhil indigenous women carrying water jugs on their heads, Rajasthan Desert, India.

Caption:

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 dug in those areas yield no potable water.
