Boys Will Be Boys

Cricket Match, UdaipurI guess that no matter where you are in the world, some things are always the same. Boys will play, and women will work, holding up the household on their shoulders!Cricket Game, Udaipur The Indian Premier League (IPL), which is the national cricket league, is playing while we are here…so everyone, everywhere has cricket fever (even more so than when we were last here!).We happened upon a pick-up cricket game while the school kids were on lunch break. They were so excited to have their pictures taken, so they really hammed it up for the camera.Cricket Match, Udaipur Lunch Break, Udaipur School ChildrenNearby, their grandmothers, mothers and sisters continued their labor, hauling water, wood and straw for miles on their heads. Their strength and stamina is just incredible. I feel like I would crumble after walking a single day in their shoes (actually barefoot, in most cases).Village Life, UdaipurVillage Life, UdaipurVillage Life, UdaipurVillage Life, UdaipurVillage Life, UdaipurVillage Life, Udaipur
