Photo journal: Indian family

It's 9am and time for breakfast. Jhanjharia's daughter-in-law Sunita arrives at the field with food.

There's roti (home-made bread) laid out on a brass plate, vegetables and buttermilk are poured into separate bowls, and some mango pickle.

Sunita has covered her face with a scarf. "It's tradition, I keep my head and face covered in front of my father-in-law," she says.

Sunita has been married for 20 years and has three sons. "I want my sons to study so that they can find good jobs."
