Return gifts for the bags

Deepshika ordered bags from the women in Palaguttapalle. The next thing they knew was that the postman from Vallivedu had called them saying that they had a parcel for them, addressed to Anita and Annapurna. They went to the PO, 4 km away, collected it and brought it home. They found four beautiful sarees in them, cotton baatik sarees !

They were thrilled, and proud that a customer had sent them a gift in return ! The sarees had thoughtful notes pinned onto each of them, with names also mentioned. Anita told me, "Madam, this is first time I have possessed a cotton saree."

This is the nature of engagement that validates much more than economic gain. It nurtures giver and receiver into deeper worth.
