The Dhobi Ghat

The Dhobi Ghat viewed from my bedroom window! I believe Bangalore doesn't have dhobis anymore, everyone uses washing machines or laundries! How sad is that, an entire trade vanishing because of the world getting modernized. However Kolkata remains a great mixture of the old and we look upon the dhobi ghat from my window! It made a lovely picture with the laburnum tree in full bloom, a hot bright day and all the clothes drying on the line!
I took pictures, and thought I would paint it, but had to put it aside till today! Had to rush to Mumbai for Nitasha's baby, who decided to come earlier than expected! So its a Kolkata memory but painted in Mumbai!
