Siamo in India, il Paese delle eterne contraddizioni. Ed ecco quella che è considerata la lavanderia a cielo aperto più antica e più grande del mondo. Si trova a Mumbai, che si chiamava Bombay fino al 1995, megalopoli di oltre 12 milioni di abitanti con una densità di 400 mila persone ogni chilometro quadrato, praticamente un formicaio.
Qui migliaia di persone vivono e lavorano in minuscole stanzette ricavate nel lavatoio stesso e lavorano tutto il giorno per poche rupie lavando i panni sporchi di cittadini, fabbriche, negozi, grandi hotel, ristoranti, ospedali. Il lavaggio è compito esclusivo degli uomini perché è ritenuta un’attività troppo faticosa per le donne. Curioso sapere che il posto di lavoro nel lavatoio si tramanda di generazione in generazione.
I vestiti vengono immersi nell’acqua saponata, e poi battuti sulle “pietre di fustigazione”. Poi finiscono in enormi vasche di amido bollente e poi stesi ad asciugare.
E a pochi passi enormi grattacieli in costruzione e stuoie di cartone dove i più poveri dormono per strada. Qui in India ci sono i miliardari (pochi) e i mentecatti (tantissimi). Qui ci sono i cervelli fini (l’India, fra le altre cose possiede la bomba atomica, oltre a laboratori d’avanguardia) e gli analfabeti, in stragrande maggioranza. Qui è anche il Paese di Mahatma Gandhi che, nonostante l’impegno profuso, non è riuscito a colmare queste disuguaglianze.

Mind boggling sight - Mumbai’s unique outdoor laundry system is where chaos, color, activity and sounds mix together in a freakish blend. It’s a fascinating place where Mumbai's laundry gets done. Clothes are hand washed by hundreds of Dhobis (laundry men and women) on concrete sinks and hung on clotheslines.

For 18 to 20 hours each day, over 7,000 people flog, scrub, dye and bleach clothes on concrete wash pens, dry them on ropes, neatly press them and transport the garments to different parts of the city. Over 100,000 clothes are washed each day. The dhobis collect clothes from all corners of the city, with their biggest clients being neighborhood laundries, garment dealers, wedding decorators and caterers, and mid-sized hotels and clubs.

Dhobi Ghat, a 140 years old open-air laundromat, is such a marvel of Mumbai. Watching the clothes painstakingly hand washed by the laundrymen in endless rows of concrete troughs fitted with flogging stones, provides an unforgettable glimpse into the workings of the city and unlike anything you have ever seen. The highlight was the laundryman beat the clothes on the flogging stone.

One of the highlights of Mumbai. Absolutely amazing. How does anyone get their own washing back?
We'd highly recommend a visit even if it's only for 10 minutes.
Lots and lots of street traders selling their wares too though so be prepared.

ลานซักผ้า ที่ได้รับการขนานนามว่าเป็น แหล่งซักผ้าที่ใหญ่ที่สุดในโลก น่าจะต้องใช้คนงานในการซักผ้ามากเป็นพันคน
ด้านบนมีระเบียงให้นักท่องเที่ยวเดินชม และถ่ายภาพสีสันของผ้าที่ตาก เรียงสีสดใสเป็นโซนตัดกันหาชมที่อื่นไม่ได้

a traditional outdoor laundry, where clothes are still washed in large outdoor pools. Dhobis pick up laundry from the better-off section of the population, hotels and hospitals. Wash, iron and return it. A hard physical work. It was constructed in 1890. There were rows of open-air concrete wash pens, each fitted with its own flogging stone. Called the world's largest outdoor laundry, Dhobi Ghat is a very popular attraction among foreign tourists.

This is quite an experience and should be visited by every tourist to Mumbai. It was certainly one of the most enlightening things we did. This open air laundry is the largest in the world and the laundry is done by hand by men! They use concrete vats filled with water and soap and pound, slap, wring, twist, etc. the clothes and garments until they are clean. They also do sheets, towels, and other linens from hotels.

After the items are washed, they are hung to dry on lines and anything else they can find. The place is huge and mind-boggling. It was like nothing I have ever seen. Definitely worth a visit even if it is out of your way.

Find the lookout point on the bridge over the railway line. This is a place to see the worlds largest open air laundry. What you actually see are hundred of clothes lines built on top of the dwellings, covered with every type of garment usually in color order. The men called Dhobi, used to hand wash all of the garments in open air concrete wash bins, but now you can see that many use washing machines. This occupation passed down from one generation to the next. The families of the Dhobi live in the dwellings under the clothes lines. It is one of the most famous sites in Mumbai and definitely worth a visit for photo or two.

Es handelt sich wohl um die Weltweit größte Wäscherei. Hier werden täglich zehntausende Wäschestücke aus ganz Dubai angeliefert. Die meisten werden gleichtägig zurückgebracht. Angeblich soll dort nicht verloren gehen, ganz ohne Computerregistrierung. Unglaublich, alles wird mit der Hand gewaschen, ein Arbeitsplatz für hunderte Menschen. Ein echte Muss für Mumbaibesucher. Wie die ganze Stadt, nicht schön, aber fazinierend.

Worth a trip out to watch the washing being done outside. Head for the viewing area. While in the area the Dadar flower market is a short Uber ride away . The people are very friendly and make you feel very welcome
