india, Varanasi, "Indian cow", cow dung "Indian woman",

holy cow!

This tall slender woman with lithe hands was collecting fresh cow dung, making neat patties, and stacking them to dry in the sun to be denatured, to use as fuel and for adding to mud as a building and finishing material. The cow is considered just a step below humans by the Hindi, and although they are treated well, their produce is never wasted.
