The dark side of India/1

Varanasi, India. Young women, immersed in the dust coming from the furnaces, transport bricks on their heads. These will then be sold on the local and international markets. In Varanasi, the Indian city that lies on the banks of the Ganges, there are furnaces in which these new slaves, guilty of belonging to the “caste of the impure”, producing and transporting bricks on the back or on the head for an economic figure barely useful for survival. Women and young, often children, working ceaselessly for hours, surrounded by highly harmful dust, and under the sun that chokes throughout South Asia.
