At first it seemed the women is naked from her waist down. Then it clears up: the man is practically naked and the woman is dressed with a body color wrap around.
Well... body as far as we know it in the west. Again my eye sees what it wants to see. Her actual body color is as dark as the men's beside her.
In rural India water is carried from the source, may it be a river or a well, in large copper or brass vessels on top of the head (sometimes a few of these in a tower line up). For that reason bathing usually takes place near the source of water, saving the hauling home.
For women it is done with full clothing on, and while dipping they soap the body under the garment.
Anyway.. in the photo they are only building a fence?
