A Yaghnobi girl takes a rest in the afternoon. Behind, her mother nurses her little brother. Childhood in this part of the world lasts only moments. From an early age the division of roles is evident. Everyone has a task from which he or she learns responsibility. Only the youngest are free. In the morning children take the cattle to the fields, then they take care of their younger brothers and sisters, afterwards they go to school. Once they are back they help in the fields or with the housework. At the end of a day, they take the cattle back home. In the evening girls help their mother with cooking and other housework / Psang, Yaghnob Valley
