These two girls are best friends at school (Gavanpada Urdu School, Chembur). They both come from disadvantaged backgrounds, with both sets of parents uneducated. These girls are the only ones going to school in their respective homes. At the tender age of 7, they seem to realize just how lucky they are to be able to study. They helped each other with their schoolwork and were practically inseparable throughout the time I was with them. When this photograph was taken, one was telling the other the answer to a question I had asked.
