Latika (on the right) is the daughter of two Nyaya members, and as a member of the Bayalpata family, she is a source of much joy among hospital staff. This photo shows her pasni celebration, or “first rice.” This event is a celebration of a child’s weaning, and transition to solid foods, and is held on an auspicious day between the age of 6 and 8 months.
