One of them balances both their pots about her on the mud platform surrounding the well, whilst the other leisurely gathers the ropes. Dressed in the colourful bootidar ghagra-cholies of North Indian married women, they have let the diaphanous wisps by way of their dupattas fall away from their torsos. They are probably chatting about the torment their children subject them to or expressing their gratitude at having seen the other in the course of their respective days. A woman's days are all the same - she is the essential backdrop against which her loved ones function, tending to an unending cycle of things that need to be done such that a contrary state of affairs occurs to no one - and it is this that forms the subject of the women's conversation at the well.
