She is poor, fun and absolutely comfortable.”
Tara is now a younger sibling to Mandira’s nine-year-old son, Vir. “Tara dotes on him and assists in keeping calls him Viru bhaiyya, while he treats her like his pesky little sister. The other day, all the way through one of his online classes, he asked his teacher whether he could introduce his sister to the class. All of them got excited and kept asking her questions. We then told them that she can’t speak English and knows only Jabalpur,” she added.
Talking approximately how they brought her home all the way through lockdown, she said, “Rraj went to Jabalpur first, while Vir and I took a private jet day after today. By the point we reached, he had completed all of the legitimate formalities. We fetched them at the airport and flew back.”
