Chand was 13 and Chakor was 11 when the talk around their marriage happened for the 1st time.
Both girls had seen many many girls get married from Katihar and claimed to know “many many things” and yet there were things which they never could quite understand.
(Katihar is a district of Bihar)
And they knew way too much…. (thats what their mothers laughingly complained)
Chand was named by her great grand mother on her dying bed as a last wish – and when Chakor came 2 years later in the neighboring house – she simply became Chand’s shadow….
