After a wait, the world watches...

This family was among a couple of dozen who were waiting to take part in a photoshoot.

The wait was made (slightly) less boring by trying on "Polio Free India" caps

This is the photo (or one very like it) which appeared in the Hindu on November 13. Click here It shows the unfortunately-named Sheila Dikshit demonstrating to Rotary volunteers and the watching world how to precisely put two drops of vaccine on the tongue of a child. Mrs Dikshit, the Chief Minister of Delhi, is a real woman of the people who has done this several times before. The woman beside her is Delhi Health Minister Kiran Walia.
