Meet my friend, Bikash Kumar. Bikash came to Kathmandu from Palanpur, India, for his little brother, Deepak, to go to school here. Bikash, 13 years old, runs this fruit stand with his father.
Deepak is 10 years old. He speaks Hindi, English and Nepali, knows Latin and Devanagari alphabets, and he’s currently learning about living things and multiplication tables. He taught me how to say “Butterfly” (putali!) 🦋
Bikash never stops smiling. I think he’s my hero ❤️
