In this second clip associated with the No More Tears Sister lesson plan, Rajani's sister Nirmala tells the story of how her parents mistreated the woman who came to pound rice in their home.
Discuss the impact of growing up in a culture that accepts discrimination as normal. Point out that even as young girls, Rajani and Nirmala knew that discrimination was wrong and discussed it with their parents in an effort to stop it. Ask students if they have ever witnessed or experienced discrimination. How did they respond? Return to lesson plan »
