Bobby was off to a cracking start.
It wasn’t long before Bobby was crossing the bridge over the Bainganga River.
Incidentally, this dam is the largest mud/earth dam in Asia.
Just as the day before, I had arranged for Bobby to talk at another village meeting.
This time I had been speaking to Sant Kumar (Santu) and Bobby would be talking to the town of Chhapara.
When we arrived at the designated location in the town centre, dhol players welcomed us a a large group of people assembled.
He also spoke about the government’s clean India campaign and girl child education initiatives.
As we were about to leave, we were offered Indian sweets and Santu told us he would source ice and catch up with us via car.
A large group walked with Bobby out of the town and some way up the highway.
At first he thought he had something stuck in his throat from the Indian sweets but as the day wore on we began to think that may not be the case.
By the end of the day, we had located a large dhaba and parked behind it away from the busy road.
There was a barber attached and Bobby decided to have a trim followed by Rahim who decided to shave all his hair off in the extreme heat.
Bobby cough was still bad.
We decided to go to sleep early and see how he was the next day.
I went to sleep dreaming of Covonia.
