Nice to see a man for a change, usually in India you see mostly old women lifting heavy stuff on their head.

Default To Eagle: weight lifting womenfolk

Women are seen lifting loads at construction sites in India - predominantly in metro cities. In most of the cases, their husbands are daily drinkers and even if they work to make a living, they consider it their right to spend their wages on locally made liquor. In India, women are much more hard working but generally decent men won't allow a woman to lift heavy weight and would offer to carry the load himself.

By the way, do you visit India often? What parts of India have been been visiting?
