School on Saturday

Saturday is also a school day in India. Yes, six days a week. I have new headsets that I will take in this morning so an English teacher can use a phonetics program on the internet with his classes today.
I was delighted to see the 10th grade girls all dressed up to go on a bus to Adoni, a nearby town, for the state Science Fair. I wish I could have gone with them. Here are some Pictures.

Tomorrow I will go to Adoni to attend a mosque. Riyaz has invited me and I will be driven there by the IndiVillage driver to meet him. Riyaz works at IndiVillage, the small business process outsourcing company (BPO) where I spend much of my time in the mornings before school and after school. I do my writing here and I have breakfast here every morning. Here are some Pictures of IndiVillage.
It is owned by the Machani family who are sponsoring my trip and stay here in Yemmiganur.


  1. It is wonderful to hear you write about a growing calmness. Lovely to also hear that you feel your greeting of the students may be the most important thing. Beautiful connecting with others! Susan
