Lalita, originally uploaded by goddessofxanadu.

Lalita sells little trinkets such as these ankle chains, to the tourists in Pushkar market.
She is 10 years old and last year started her schooling at the new free school for girls in Pushkar. It has made an enormous difference to her life, and happily for Lalita, her mum is overjoyed at the opportunity for her daughter, one that she never had.

Lalita is bright at as a button and has caught on fast. She speaks good english, which is taught at the school, and she is learning to read and write. Mum also gets to attend on Fridays where they help her to learn to read too.

Its a wonderful place and has provided a much needed educational opportunity for the girls of the little town.
