“A weaver working on silk for a sari in the village of Sarai Mohana, a few miles outside #Varanasi, India. The Mumbai chain @tajhotels is trying to reinvigorate the ancient skill of weaving here by employing the weavers and inviting tourists to visit them as they work. In #SaraiMohana, the company installed a water pump and opened a school for local children that has a computer lab. For visitors coming from Varanasi, traffic and potholed roads mean that what should be a quick drive is a 40-minute journey, one in which hundreds of rickshaws and cars jamming the streets give way to swaying fields of mustard plants. The photographer @poraschaudhary photographed Sarai Mohana for @nytimestravel. Join us this #nytweekender as we follow @nytimestravel around the world.” By nytimes on Instagram.
