Often, the place smells like feet

Lots of little feet

Shoes in the hall.

Learning to lace them up

Shoes are difficult when you're that little

This is Anurag, one of the younger students at the school where I volunteer “teach.” He’s four and some change.

He knows how to tie his school shoes, but hasn’t quite figured out how to put them on without collapsing the heels. I help him from time to time, but he doesn’t have much patience and often just runs off with shoes half on.

I also order him to clean his nose regularly, because he’s usually snotty. “Tumhara nak saph karo!” Damn cute, I’ll say.
