Today’s literacy-related photo was sent in by our contributor in India, Anu. She says:
I clicked this one at a wedding I attended recently. the kid in the centre is my son and next to him are two of his cousins. and the one reading over their shoulder is a cousin of ours. it just illustrates the continuing importance of newspapers in our day to day life, at least in India. Even in the hustle of a wedding, they looked around for a newspaper and pored over it.. in case you are wondering what they were so absorbed in, it is the only game which brings out the best and worst in us – Cricket!! the IPL tournament was on, and all of them were eager to know the scores!!!
