Geeta's Day

Geeta's day begins as most children's do, but when she sets off to school, passing the "kamar" at the forge, the "bhandari" shaving a customer, and the "mali" weaving garlands of flowers to offer to the temple gods, her world begins to beat to the distinctive rhythm of Indian village life. "Geeta's Day" highlights the unique things that make her world special, but it also reveals that much is the same for children everywhere. Prodeepta Das' photography vividly conveys the heat and vibrancy of an Indian plains village, and his delightful dawn-to-dusk journal encourages young readers to compare and contrast Geeta's day with their own.
