This is so charming -- the expression on her face!

...and symbolic in several ways: [Forgive my over-analysis] The star above her, the crumbling of the Soviet Communist Empire, or is it the symbol of international proletarian unity -- that failed to deliver prosperity and equality to people like her and her community. Her blouse says "Flying"... To me, I see the future generation full of hope, overcoming the many failures of several past generations and philosophies.

It that a Seva Niketan hostel in the background -- a welcome to travelers and strangers?

The Communist Party is still quite strong in parts of India.

It's the Khristiya Seva Niketan Hospital, I stayed at the hospital as a guest and did some voluntary work there last February. I plan to return this coming February. This is the hospitals Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/KSNHospitalSarenga/?fref=nf

This struck me a little funny, Graham. I see a girl with somewhat of a devious smile in front of a headless goat. Okay .. I know that wasn't the case, but it did strike me like that at first.

It's too small and skinny to qualify as a cow in Minnesota.

Yup, America does have an obesity problem but I didn't realise that the farm animals were overweight too
