I think this page is too narrow in scope-- a 'Dhobi Ghat' is NOT just an open air laundromat in Mumbai, India, bit is also the common term/word for washing places where the dhobis (traditional washermen and women) go to wash clothes-- it is used for such places throughout India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, to the best of my knowledge. The word comprises of 'dhobi/dhoby' (i.e. washer) and 'ghat' (or 'ghaut') (ie a place). Maybe, if there is already a separate page about this topic, then they should have a disambiguation page, to help out researchers? Thanks
