In this photograph taken on December 13, 2012, an Indian worker picks up dried clothes from a tin roof at an open air laundry facility known as the Dhobi Ghat in Mumbai. This 25-acre (10-hectare) space is a chaotic conglomeration of rows of open-air concrete wash pens, each with its own flogging stone and rooms where the washermen, also known as 'dhobiwallahs', sleep and work. Many of the over 700 families that make a living out of this Dhobi Ghat, who had followed their father into the business, a life of dunking, thrashing and drying close to 1,000 items of clothing each day for just 7 USD, are worried about the future as the workload has gone down considerably. Most ordinary Indians who have seen their disposable incomes rise as the country's economy expands, have dispensed with the services of the dhobiwallahs for good since most modern homes are equipped with a washing machine.
