The Dress

In a blog the other day, I talked about one of Maya's favourite dresses being repaired and given to a little girl who spends the day with her mother selling food to passers-by at the end of our road. We've since discovered that the girl's name is Ashiswini, and here'a a photo of her above taken wearing it. It's actually done well this dress, as it was also well worn by Maya's older cousin Daisy. Ashiswini's mother, Lakshmi, has constructed a very simple swing out of a sari, hanging from a tree so that she can both play and sleep in it. People here never fail to amaze me how resilient they are, making the best out of situations that I know in England we just wouldn't begin to know how to deal with.
