little girl in himalayan village (india)

little girl in himalayan village (india), child, janki chatti, kid, little girl, people

This little girl was very smart.­

She was the only one in the entire village that could speak (and understand) a bit of English.­ And the little English she knew, she was speaking it very well.­ I was amazed.­

All the other kids and older villagers only speak their local dialect and a bit of Hindi.­

She told me her name and age (which I don't remember, sorry!), showed me her house, and then she asked me "What is your village?".­ How cute!

Obviously she has never been in a large city, and she thinks everyone live in small villages like hers.­ The closest city is probably about 200 Km away (i.­e.­ one full day of travel by local bus), so it's understandable.­

In the back, you can see the roof of a village house, covered with stone slabs.­
