The water wives- Marrying for fetching water from distant sources- a concept that lately has become a trend in drought-hit areas like Western Maharashtra for many years. The daily task of a water wife is to fetch water for the house while the legal wife manages cooking. In hot summer they leave at sunrise, carrying empty metal vessels on their head. Each vessel carries approximately 15 litres of water. Each woman carries 2 or 3 vessels.
