Photographer's Note

This was taken from running train during my Train Journey from Ranthambore to Kota. You can see some black blurred portion of the window grill at top.

This is Lakheri area of Kota. Lakheri is famous for its strong and solid bricks.

These are workers of a Brick Furnace or "Eent Bhatta" (that is just behind this house). This area is famous for Kota Stone and red Sand stone. Till few years earlier, all of the major constructions of walls and columns were made from stone pieces but now bricks have taken place for walls and columns are made from RCC and in some cases with stone pieces.

It is just before the sunset (around 5:00 p.m.) of January and these workers have completed their daily duty on brick furnace. It is time to wash the hand and mouth and go to prepare dinner. Many of the workers reside nearby this brick furnace to save daily conveyance charges. Each worker gets around Rs. 75-80 (USD 1.5$) a day. Both man and woman members work. Many of the male workers waste their hard earned money into "Desi Daru" (locally made liquor) and in that case family expenditures are borne by ladies of the family. Many times this problem leads to disturb their daily life.
