Milkwoman delivers afternoon fresh milk.
Cows are milked twice a day in India, early morning and early afternoon.
Traditionally milkman, and some milkwomen, go around on motorcycles, scooters and some bicycles for delivery right after they collect the milk from cow owners. Tamil Nadu, where I took this photo, is one of the hot states of India and in most towns and villages refrigerators are not yet a staple of every household (until recent years a rare luxury) so milk is bought in the amount to be consumed within a few hours.
