Dont make mistakes

When you alight from the train
look for Ramdhun, the rickshaw-wala
Tell him you want to go to chowk and
pay him two rupees no more

When you come to the stream
take your shoes in your hands
hold the rope on the log bridge
or you will get wet

A small walk along the cowpath
and you will reach the village chowk
Ask for Vaidji. Everyone knows him
as he gives them medicines

The village boys will follow you
as you will be dressed strangely
in city clothes
Let them

If you see me playing with other girls
or doing some chores
dont stare or call me by name
They will be shocked
