“Pandita, as stewards of God’s bounty, we want to know our efforts will bear fruit.”
Rama bristled. “I don’t understand. Do you want me to explain what I’ve explained so many times before? Child marriage, and the reasons high caste women don’t remarry? Their pitiful conditions? Their need for education?”
“No. Touch your listeners’ hearts. Introduce your audience to a real child widow. Show these good people the child’s pain. People didn’t understand the need to end slavery until they encountered real slaves. Do you understand what I’m saying? Convict your audience by the strength of your testimony. Let them see God’s grace upon you.”
More stories, Rama thought as she inclined her head.
