Durag Niwas Guest House:
Not many guest this year like last year in this season, but the guest house is running well with the long term guests, the house has new decorations. The roof will be setup with sari curtains soon once the rainy season is over in a months time.
Mumy and Grand Ma are well, Mukta and Ayush have returned from her sister's home, 30 hours train journey in one way. Shakti is well, and I am doing allright, I am sad that the Graduates are leaving soon, the two sewing centers have to be set up for the graduates so that they can start to earn their living, have to hire a lady who could manage the sewing centers for some weeks before the girls (graduates) can really take care of the responsbility, have to look for a place where we can esteblish Sambhali India Shop, Ms. Corinne Rose has come to help me with this from UK for one year, The Service learning trip is coming from USA with 14 american students, they will live in Setrawa for a long time with the local village families, a lot of brain storming for me. I look forward to that.
Please read some more news soon in the month of August.
