This picture taken on April 7, 2017 shows Rahul Chaudhry (R), project co-ordinator from Digital Empowerment Foundation, showing a tablet computer to salt pan worker Kailashben Pradhuman Kansagara, to show her the digital survey of the area in the Little Rann of Kutch (LRK) region of Gujarat some 180km west of Ahmedabad. Indian salt pan workers of the Agariya community in Gujarat work in the remote and arid Little Rann of Kutch (LRK) region for nearly eight months of the year during the salt farming season. India is ranked third in gross amount of salt produced in the world, behind China and the United States, and the western state of Gujarat accounts for 77 percent of India's production. -- Sheltered beneath a canvas sheet to escape the blistering desert sun, miles from any roads or power lines, a group of Indian children huddle around a digital tablet and experience the internet for the very first time. The remote wi-fi connection is powered by a van bringing the digital world to around 10,000 families living on the inhospitable salt flats of western Gujarat, where they work eight months a year in extreme conditions. / AFP PHOTO / SAM PANTHAKY / TO GO WITH AFP STORY India-education-NGO (Photo credit should read SAM PANTHAKY/AFP via Getty Images)
