Many were in need of repairing and maintainance. We had asked a sewing maschine- technichian to come and look over our maschine park. Three of the maschines were in very advanced decay in my eyes. Let's see what the man who knows will say!!
AND WE WERE SITTING WAITING...
During waiting time many discussions are going on...Kulvinder and I decided to tell Mima about the big opportunity for her daughter to get help with her schoolfees and other costs, through a swedish couple that want to help a girl to fulfill her studies up to college.This girl of 16 yrs has already reached 10th class, so she has 2 more years before college. And we know her dream is to become a teacher.BUT the mother says NO!IT IS IMPOSSIBLE! I was chocked!
This happens to many girls in this culture. The farhers are agreeing with another family as a part of any other businesslike agreement that this family will get a certain daughter to marry one of their sons.And the girl may not know it AND not even the mother may know about this agreement!
At least it's illeagel to marry before 18. But many just don't bother...
So now it's up to this becoming family-in-law to give permission for the girl to study...In this case this in-law family is not so educated, so they may not want an educated wife for their son.
WHAT IS TO BE DONE?
TODAY THE COMPUTERS ARE VERY SLOW, SO I WILL PUT SOME MORE PICTURES LATER.
