Good Morning!
Nothing like the old method of washing when it comes to washing heavy linen ..... even in the present 21st century!
I captured this shot just the other day. I did enjoy clicking this one. Hope you'll like it.

Excellent shot, Uttam! Interesting way for washing linens. Well, in my home everything goes in the laundry machine and dryer. The perfect way of the lazy housekeeper like me who prefer to stay infront of the computer,haha.

Why not Uttam?! you don't need electrical power for that and the "gym" needed for that is an advantage too, great shot!
