Keeping it Clean

DOTTED throughout Bangalore are hundreds of Dhobi ghats. Forests of sheets, towels, shirts and pants, nestled in pockets of suburbia. The hanging laundry billows in the wind, and the madiwala – traditional washermen – can be found slipping between these rows of linen, weaving their way through it, bundles of clothes in their arms. In the middle of which is a detergent stained pool where the madiwala, or Dhobis, wash Bangalore’s dirty laundry.
