Scary mannequin exposé

This is an exposé on the scary mannequin's inhabiting the bazaars of Delhi. I've known small children to cry when they see some of them.

There are the sad children of war...

There's Miss Molded-head, who changes her clothes with the times but not her hair. Not to mention that she feels terribly marginalized because she looks nothing like the Indian women for whom she is modeling those clothes...

Miss Fallen, who has landed on her face so many times that her nose is scarred and she hides under her hat...

The dancing instructor--"Where should my feet go?"

And not to be left out: The freakishly excited, armless bride and her melancholy, bald bridesmaid.

Little guy didn't cry seeing them this time. He said he liked them, the kids especially. My favorite is the bride and bridesmaid. At least their skin tone is better suited for India.

The bride and bridesmaid are my favorite, too. I don't know how someone could dress them up that way and not have a sense of humor.
