Villagers pluck water chestnuts from a pond in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh state, Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2019. Workers stay afloat in a deep pound with the help of two empty vessels tied to bamboo. They earn about about 250 Rupees ($3.5) a day after spending 5-6 hours extracting the aquatic vegetable that grows mostly in stagnant water. (AP Photo/Rajesh Kumar Singh)
