While I was relieved that I don’t have to post anything today, my day seemed incomplete without writing. Today I do have something I’m really happy about. Mantam were very nervous about going to the new school. Infact Mannu cried on the second day saying she feels very lonely and that nobody talks to her. They were apparently asked to form groups of three and nobody came forward to take her in their group. Abbas and I had a nice long conversation with them that night, it was more of a pep talk. The next day onwards, either things got better for them or they became more adaptive to the situation. They still have a long long way to go till they make strong friendships. It’s been two weeks now and they had their first assembly of the year today. To our surprise, both the girls received awards from their respective class teachers. It was heartening to see the gleam in the girls’ eyes when they showed us the awards.
