Holi was celebrated much more vigorously in Lula Bari, our girls home, than it was by the boys here in Kolkata.
Maybe as they grow older, the boys are not quite so interested, but the girls had a great day.
Tamina came to shuktara in 2008, when she was around nine years old. She was being cared for in a night shelter close to Howrah Station, along with Lali. They asked if we would take both girls, and so Pappu collected Tamina and then went back for Lali the next day.
