Kolkata Diary. Hannah Trying On Shoes or Empowered Cinderella

Hannah buying shoes in Udiapur

Walking around Udiapur is like being inside Jeannie’s bottle.  Remember her pink circular couch and fabric wall.  It’s like a fairy tale of small spaces, little shuttered windows that open on small alleys, shallow balconies, decorative doorways and Escher-like stairways.

So when I took this picture of Hannah trying on shoes, I couldn’t help but think of  Cinderella.  A modern day Cinderella, who gets to choose her own shoes and buys them with the money she earned.

An empowered woman.  Which is what this trip to India is all about.  Empowering women.
