To celebrate Teacher’s Day, I visited a school yesterday through the NGO Akanksha. Akanksha works towards providing free education to under-privileged kids. I saw these two sitting outside a class, talking softly while the kid continued colouring. I asked the girl if she was a teacher and she said she was a counsellor and the kids called her ‘didi‘ (elder sister).
“What do you like about this didi?”
“She is very beautiful.”
Seen in Dadar, Mumbai.
