Memoirs of Rangoli ... (p29) - faces ... part 2
Rusirani Village, Jaipur
the sister carried him to each one of us, asking for her brother's picture to be taken. but she never wanted to be in, hence the half-frame of her face. at one point, she forgot that she did came to me and asked, and i took it again. but the 3rd time, when i was memo-graphing other kids, i had to show her the pictures taken before so that she satisfied.
the kids of rusirani were a joy to mingle with. their laughter and excitement, obviously took all of my disappointment with the kids of haathi gaon of Jaipur, that nothing short of asking money for each time their picture taken. Dev told us that never to treat them with any money directly, as once it'd be given, it'd creep in like a disease.
