They draw with chalk of rough cement floors.
Simply I sit, watch and learn.
& document. The chalk drawings have become a coloring in book for the elderly and children in the other building.
The result: a coloring in book that connects 2 buildings that are completly disconnected, but on the same ashram. The floor drawings are photographed I digitally transfer & thicken the lines. Then I print the book! Very Local very non- digital. A lot of smiles!
Still in Ujjain India – learning Hindi in the local government school – Lekoda village – look it up on a map …..eeek
