The thin line of healing

Usha Jesudasan
"A cook chops herbs into this cooking skillet on top of a stove in this kitchen in Debradun, India. With curry and coriander seasonings, this promises to be a healthy offering of vegetables, including okra, potatoes and peas. The kitchen is operated by Astitva, a local non-profit organization that helps abused women start small business and find jobs so that they can become economically self-sufficient. Two women operate the kitchen as a profit-making business. They prepare meals for staff, students in a day-care center and deliver tiffins to local business people at lunch -- as well as grind spices for a thrift shop."
