Washing machines made their entry in India around the mid 80’s giving relief to maids who until then washed clothes by beating them on a washing stone!The first washing machines were the semi-automatic ones with separate washer and dryer and was replaced many years later with the fully automatic one. Today, every middle class household in India boasts of owning a washing machine, though the poor still use the traditional method -washing by hand.
So, I was mighty surprised when I saw this lady (coming out from my sons’s basketball class), who lives in a shack in a corner of a playground, but owns a washing machine! Times are a changing?
