This morning I was feeling a bit inconvenienced as I was heating water on the gas cook top to take a bucket bath and wash my hair.  Then I remember the women I have seen carrying water on their heads home for the days use.
Could we have a hot water heater in the bathroom?  Yes, if we want to pay for the instillation in our rental home.  We plan to leave in a few weeks.  In Gujarat it is very hot most of the year and a hot water heater is not needed.  Now it is in the 80s F and the water tank on the rood does not heat up that much.

Today I am grateful for running water in my home and a gas cook top I can use to heat it instead of an open fire using cow chips for fuel.  LivingIndia does put things into perspective.
