Richan in India


Richan, twelve, lives in Mussoria, a little city perched on top of a mountain in the north of India. In this region, one of the most common forms of traditional art is papier maché jewelry making. Richa wants to learn about this art from in order to give her mother the most beautiful birthday present ever! To make a necklace, Richa uses newspapers, glue and paint. While the paper sits in the glue, she goes off on an adventure with her friends, picking plants in the mountains, swimming in a lake and meeting a snake charmer. Richa doesn’t have time to be bored!
