336a4619I saw a couple of road work operations happening around Goa. Mainly they consist of women carrying extremely heavy loads of rocks to present them to a chubby male boss, who then throws them onto the road. One such occasion (not the man featured in this picture), the male boss armed with bamboo was whacking the women if he thought they were not walking fast enough. The women did not flinch, almost as if it had not  happened despite the fact they would have train track bruises the next day.
