A woman spins cotton thread on a charkha (spinning wheel) in the courtyard of a temple in the northern Indian town of Ayodhya September 22, 2010. A court will rule on Friday whether Hindus or Muslims own land around a demolished mosque in Ayodhya in a bid to settle a dispute that in 1992 sparked some of the worst riots since the sub-continent's partition.
