With a month left, I'm reminded of our venture's beginning in February. Since then I've learned much more than I expected- from the reality of violence against women in rural and urban Rajasthan to perfecting the art of chapatti-making and everything in between. There are some experiences that stay with you for a lifetime. I have no doubt that Shreeji ka Kheda is one of them.
I realize such a reflection would be more appropriate at the end of my visit rather than with one month remaining. But what can I say- at 8 pm a flickering candle has found me in the mood for musing. Sometimes words don't do justice to the heaviness of thought. And so I pass the remainder of this dark, candle-lit night pondering in silence.
