17-Rajasthan-girl

Taken by Pista Sirohi, 13 years, Chandelao/Rajasthan It is quite new for Chandelao that parents are investing into education of their daughters. Their marriages are arranged and the parents have to pay dowry. The husband should have a better education than the wife. So educated girls have the chance of getting a good marriage – or the bad luck to not finding a propper match. For higher education (after class 10) they had to visit a school outside the village – no problem for the boys with bicycles, for girls it was not allowed. The Thakur sponsored a car for them.
