Second time in a row, we witnessed the awe followed by admiration. In our latest sessions with kids studying at primary schools run by the government in Varanasi, we asked the kids to draw their pictures. Teachers in the school thought we are joking and they suggested us to ask for something simple. However, kids were not thinking that much.
The moment we asked them to draw, they jumped into the task. Some made circular faces, some long. Some had short hairs, some had long, some had tied properly. Lips were shining, faces were brown. Similar to our last session, when kids finished, teachers were competing amongst themselves to find out whose students had made the best drawing. Earlier, they were unsure whether anyone would draw. However, they were happy, in fact very happy to be wrong.
