For Ju, old is gold. Her mother brings her hand-me-downs from the homes in which she works and Ju welcomes them like new friends.

She especially loves the well-used textbooks and the treasures sometimes hidden among their pages: pressed flowers, poems, even a dead butterfly. Then one day Ju discovers a sealed envelope in the maths book. It has a stamp but no address.

Ju’s Story
is part of ‘Different Tales’, a project undertaken by Anveshi Research Centre for Women’s Studies, Hyderabad, to present stories about life-worlds seldom reflected in children’s books.
