So, that’s the plan for now, but most importantly I do not want to be a burden to anyone.”

Swimming in Sreepur

July 28, 2017

Every day at three o’clock, Sumi, a seven-year–old girl of Sreepur Village, rushes home from school eagerly wanting to visit the village pond. Keen to get there, when the actual time comes to dip her toes into the welcoming waters, Sumi doesn’t want to enter.
