Ayesha Rashid Bhai Mansuri & Nausim Rashid Bhai Mansuri,

10 Juhapura, Ahmedabad

Father irons clothes


"We have lived here for eight years, on this side of the road we call ‘Border’. We cross to the Hindu side only to buy vegetables. Recently, Hindus and Muslims threw stones at each other across the Border during a wedding. I know what a Hindu looks like because they wear a bindi and tika. The only time we meet them is when we go with father to the factory where he works. It’s in the Hindu area."
