  1. Hey all – forgot to mention my choice of music in the email blast. I really think the Madonna song “What It Feels Like for a Girl” works for this piece. Nowhere is it more true than in India that women and girls have it really tough. Pile on top of that starting life at a disadvantage simply by being an orphan. What do you think – does the music work?

      • Thanks, Debbie! I was worried Esther would get some eyerolls but I went with it.

        Thanks for watching, Steve — they are beautiful, aren’t they?

  3. Laura,
    Yes the music is quite fitting. You should get Madonna involved with that orphanage.
    Keep up the good work!

    • Hi Michael, Thanks for watching and commenting. It’s so nice to hear from you after such a long time! I hope you and your family are well. Are you still shattering students’ minds at ICP?

      I wish Madonna would get involved — maybe she would adopt another kid from New Delhi 😉

    • Lisa, It is I who have YOU to thank for letting me join you for the day at Rose Home — you and your mum are an inspiration! India misses you terribly.

      Mum, thanks so much for watching the video and for the married life wishes — we await your visit! ❤
