Pamela Singh's best photograph – a woman dying in India's City of Widows
‘The town of Vrindavan is a magnet for bereaved women. Elderly widows come to this square to die in the sun’One day in 1994, while staying in Vrindavan, a small town in Uttar Pradesh, I went exploring on my own. I came upon a quiet square. It was midday and the Indian heat was sweltering. I saw a woman lying alone, swaddled in fabric. In the background of this shot, you can see a bundle of clothes. That’s her.I moved towards her and saw she was dying. She was extremely old and clearly in her final moments. I went to fetch her some water when a group of children appeared. They thought nothing of it. They explained that elderly women and widows often come here to die. She could no longer talk.Just as some Buddhists and Hindus scale Mount Kailash to perish in the cold, these widows pass away in heat of the sun Continue reading... [...]

'I won't do toilets': the unvarnished reality of life as a maid in India
Domestic service can extract a family from extreme poverty – but it can also be a path to near-enslavement. Tripti Lahiri investigates the uneasy, and sometimes abusive, relationship between India’s modern-day ‘madams’ and maids“Knock twice, not three times. If someone banged your door hard, wouldn’t you get cross?” asks Preeti, a woman in her early twenties with a bachelor’s degree in political science – which may come in useful when preparing the group of women she now instructs on the art of being a superior maid. “Madam gets cross too. Knock on the door lightly like this, and ask for permission to come in.”Suddenly there is a loud bang on the door, which startles Preeti. The kudawala has come to pick up the garbage; he asks for it in a sullen tone with little apparent care for how his knocking is received. Much giggling ensues among the women.For the most part, the newly enriched in India are not bursting with compassion and generosity for othersToday's domestic workers no longer consider themselves far beneath the people they work for Related: The Inequality Project: the Guardian's in-depth look at our unequal world Continue reading...
