Mohammad Talib weaves clothes at his handloom workshop in his home in the northern Indian city of Varanasi June 10, 2007. Talib owns several looms but is able to operate just one as he is not able to afford the wages of hired workers. The northern city of Varanasi is to handloom saris what Darjeeling is to tea. Yet despite producing some of the most coveted saris in the Indian subcontinent, the weavers -- said to number between 200,000 and 500,000 -- have never been rich. Now, with the market flooded with cheap machine-made saris, they are poorer than ever with some turning to farming and manual labour and others resorting to begging. Picture taken June 10, 2007.
