Woman at work in Malegaon
Powerloom is the prime economy of this town. Women are equally hard working in this town as men. A woman in this picture is seen working on a machin called Tarashan. The woman earns Rs 500 a week. A tarashan machine, which is the first step towards weaving cloth, costs between Rs 20,000 and Rs 60,000. A photograph by Aasif Ansari
