Ahmedabad Adventure : Ramabhai


This is Ramabhai, everyone over here gets a term of endearment added to the end of their name, generaly it's bhai for men and ben for women, which means brother or sister, brother Rama has been looking after me during my visit to the village center where women embroiderers come to work, he is the gate keeper of the centre, and has been generaly making sure I'm ok. When we got up after the first night at the centre he took me out for a walk so the women could get washed in privacy. Of course he doesn't speak a word of English but that doesn't stop him joking around with me . He's made me promise to send a print of the standing photo ! and those sunglasses, yes they're a permanent fixture.
