The Women Of India Series #7

It is Dussera and the roads are full of orange flowers. Everyone wants torans for their homes, cars, workplaces.

The saffron wave is a delight to the eyes. And behind these saffron strings are women who work day and night collecting mango leaves and marigolds and preparing the torans.

As I bend down to click one of them , she giggles and bursts into laughter.

“Didi, why are you clicking me?”

Before I could answer her mother says ” Because you are helping your mom out”.
