In the end, all I wanted to do was to show my great admiration for the Tribal women here. They are strong, resilient, hardworking and caring.
I am always thankful for witnessing a glimpse of their daily life.
This is my 100-word story on this Tribal woman:
She was cooking
tomatoes when I approached her outside the house.
She stood up and smiled, and shook my hand with a grip.
I asked her how she is, and she replied that she’s fine.
She made me sit on the charpai,*
and her kids sat around me.
While I was talking with the children, I took out my phone and took her photo.
And she was happy when I showed it to her.
