In a picture taken on November 21, 2012, Drishti Silwal (R), a 12 year old Brahmin Nepali girl poses with (L-R) her uncle, her aunt, her grandmother and grandfather, who took care of her since birth as her mother refused to care for her, at their home in Kathmandu. Dristhi returned to school after spending 7 days staying in the darkness of her bedroom as part of an isolation ritual during her first menstruation. Usually Brahmans stay isolated for 21 days in the dark, without the permission to look outside, see any men, pray or cook, but in modern families the ritual can be reduced to 7 days and Drishti was allowed to read.
