1.The Gular Flower: The gular, or cluster fig, flower is very very beautiful, everyone says, and Renchu is desperate to see it. But is it red and big, pink and small, or white and shining like a star? Does it bloom during full moon in the month of Magh or of Kartik? There are many stories, all different, and only the really lucky get to see it. As she goes about her day picking waste, Renchu can think of only one thing – will she too see it sometime?
