Lives of labor
Kochi, a cosmopolitan port city of 600,000 whose name means “sea gate,” (and which is also known by its colonial name, Cochin) prospered from the 1400s as a spice trading center.
And then there’s the real work.
Filling some of the city’s ubiquitous potholes.
Delivering wood for the construction of a new house.
Multitasking during a too-short break.
Selling every kind of oil.
A banana salesman rests in the shade.
Working together is sometimes the only way to get the job done.
Asking a co-worker to bring water.
After school fun.
