Photographer's Note

This was anothe picture taken during one lazy sunday late mornings.
Ludhiana is one of major industrial hub of India and is known as "Manchester of East" due to very good cotton garments manufacturing production facilities here. It produces and supplies to some of the world famous names like Nike, Reabok, Adidas, Puma, Manchester United (their oficial T Shirts are manufactured here for the team), Benetton, Wallmart to name a few.
This brings in whole lot of populuation from neighbouring states to Ludhiana in serach of jobs and as of now there are approx. 1.50 million migrants in Ludhiana involved in variety of factory jobs.
Though it has created good economic growth for them as well as for the city but has resulted in too much of drain on the resources of the city which is bursting at the seams.
And as my friends "Miha" asked me.....yes the city has become pretty polluted and even the water is pretty much polluted not just beacasue of the population but also because of the waste that is flown into the rivers and rivulets by the dyeing units.
This picture shows one such house of one of the migrant labor in the outskirts of the city. This guy is lucky to live in such nice surroundings, though most of his friends live in slum like localities.
