A poignant piece on the difficult decisions people face.

A couple of things. If the girl is poor and of a low caste, how did she know English (feather)? Cute detail, but it doesn't really fit. Also, the word for the temple prostitute is devadasi or devdasi.

I'm glad the story turned out well for the little girl. :)
Beautiful story.

Wonderfully descriptive. I can't imagine having to make a choice like this!
Just the right ending for this bittersweet story
