She came. She saw. She conquered.

Shanibarer Haat (Saturday Market) by the Sonajhuri Forest is an event not to be missed at Shantiniketan. The market is a colorful, vibrant place to feel the heartbeat of life in Bolpur-Shantiniketan. Last January we made a short weekend trip to Shantiniketan. As I was wandering around in this makeshift market I spotted this ‘little aficionado’ approaching towards the baul sitting underneath a tree. She was curious about the ‘ektara’ (an indigenous single-stringed musical instrument used by local folk singers). I don’t know what she spoke to him, as I couldn’t hear anything from a distance. A moment later they became friends and she started assisting him in his music with a ‘jhunjhuni’.

  1. The time u spend with kids are really refreshing. The day before holi all the children in our bus was asked if they were carrying colours. One pre-primary child immediately surrendered saying ” mam, I have colours” and then she took the box in which she was carrying crayons 🙂
