A Weaver Girl

This candid photograph is clear from foreground to background, shows a weaver girl labouring, not far from a road. The girl sits on the ground, with her legs partly cover with long leaves. She holds a cutter on one hand, and uses both hands to work on the leaf. Perhaps she is being attracted by some happening on her right, and turns to have a better view. She is helper of an adult, perhaps her mother. Children in rural area sometimes start laboring at an early age.
