Hello again from Purulia. Here is what is going on in October.
In Purulia October is special as the time when peoples’ minds turn to marking Jita Puja, the festival of family. However, in West Bengal and the whole of India really, people spend the whole month preparing for Durga Puja, which lasts four days and starts here this year on 18th October. In Dabar we finished the repair work on our school buildings. We are also having to face up to a disappointing harvest and future problems with our water provision. Lastly, Sundays at the school are busier than ever.
