Church Family

This group of Jain Nuns walked here to Jaipur from South India. They carry a broom to sweep away insects as they walk because they don't want to kill even an ant. The religion has never spread beyond India because they don't believe they should use transportation.


Today we visited 2 beautiful places in India. The Taj Mahal and the Sheroes Cafe. Everyone knows the Taj, of course, but the Sheroes is a coffee/sandwich shop run by girls and women who are acid attack victims. They have come out of the shadows and are living lives as survivors of terrible attacks on them. Many of the attacks are simply because they are just women, and often their attackers are their own relatives. What an emotional experience . Many of them were wearing shirts that said "My beauty is my smile".
