We met Jayant and his daughter Deepakshi in a basti right opposite our old house in Gurgaon. Deepakshi was singing with her friend Sohani when we arrived; they had both just gotten back from school. Deepakshi is in class 1 at Rao Ram Singh Public School. Unlike most people we met, she wants to be a singer when she grows up. She sang us a hindi poem ‘tittli chale jayegi’ (the butterfly will go) and her mother also asked her to sing us ‘Twinkle twinkle little star’. At first she was shy but then her love for music motivated her to go for it. She sang in an adorable voice and is an incredibly cute six year old. Her father, Jayant, works with the Delhi public transportation department and is very proud of her.
