Malar Selve Thangaraj smears a stain across Andhi's lips. It is summer vacation and the girls are playing dress up. In their best outfits, the ones kept sealed in a plastic bag under the bed, and all the plastic jewelry they own, they wait for their turn to be a daughter again. For one moment, their surrogate mother, her attention constantly divided between 35 of them, will paint their face and shower them with attention. (image by Margaret Fenton)
