Dhobi Ghat: In the heart of Srinagar

JK Bank

In the heart of Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, washermen have been washing shawls on the banks of Jhelum River for ages. The job has been passing from one generation to another but now it is ending slowly, with the introduction of machines.

Saide Zahoor meets some of them on one such bank of Jhelum.
