Dhobi Ghat

A typical “Dhobi Ghat” has rows of concrete wash pans, each fitted with its own flogging stone to get rid of dirt from the laundry collected form different parts of the city. The clothes are usually soaked in water first, thrashed violently on the flogging stones, tossed into starch if required hung out or put in huge dryers to dry. After that they are ironed and piled into neat bundles and sent to the respective owners.
Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat is tucked away amid the chaos of Mahalaxmi Station. It is an open-air laundromat and the vibrant colors of clothes all around is the perfect place to take your camera and soak in the suds. From the flyover that heads towards Saat Rasta, the biggest washer man colony in the world looks like a neat game of a puzzle. The small and dark lanes within the ghat provide ample opportunities for screenplay.
