So far the children in our first art camp have been very delightful. There are nine of them- ranging from about age 6-13. These children are about the most affluent children in India. They go to private schools, use computers and watch a lot of television. Because of that they are very much influenced by the western world. For the most part they don't seem very different than the average American child. Things that do differ are religion, local customs, food, climate, and the world around them. These are the children that may one day have the opportunity to study in the U.S. It is interesting for me to see this atmosphere that they are growing up in since I have had several friends from India in college.
