Young Girl + Window, Shamli District, Uttar Pradesh, India, 2019

As an experiment, would any of my Indian friends be able to translate her performance? It would be wonderful to share the meaning with the rest of us. 

This video, made last week, shows a young girl as she performs in her headmaster's room. She and her friends attend Koranic classes in this madrasa, and refrain from attending the government school due to their parents' mistrust of the latter.

The headmaster seeks to include four new teachers in his madrasa so the girls can have a fuller education, and we aim to find the support for their salaries. Let's come together and make this happen!

PS Thanks to Javed and Imdadullah for stopping the motorcycles, and for asking everyone to be quiet during her performance!
