How nice and cheerful these ladies are! And how difficult to believe they are doing such hard manual work wearing tight blouses, lovely saris in over 90 f degrees - and are still jolly and smiling!

Here are the four ladies cutting up thorny bushes for sale to the local hospital. The hospital use the fast-burning branches for cooking giant pots of rice and sambhar. Everyday these ladies come out into the conservation area to do the hard, unpleasant work of cutting up gnarled pieces of thorny bushes. Its hot, hard work.

Thanks for sharing the info! It is the same situation and the same sights of laughing, shy ladies, all over India. We bow in respect to their transparent lives of hard work and dedication to take care of their families!
