Dawn of Enlightenment
‘School days’ is an endearing metaphor the world over, evoking images and memories of a complete childhood. More so in a country like ours where large sections of the population have no access to education, even today. However grim this might seem, one can sense the winds of change begin to stir and new dreams starting to take wing as the idea of education gains in popularity and social acceptance.
A sign of this change is symbolised in this picture of a tribal mother from the Kadu Kuruba community of Kabini, getting her daughter ready for school… and the future!
