Villagers hail Sunita Williams

September 22, 2007
Video and Text: Raja Sen

The people of Gujarat are blocking the streets to see her, and she has become the state's rock star.

Here, we ask a few villagers from the tiny hamlet of Nadipur the key question: Who is Sunita Williams? Their reverence to the astronaut is unquestioned, but as this telling exchange reveals, they believe in a divine interaction, in a lady who has travelled upwards, gone to heaven even, and actually ome back down.

Justifiably, these people now want a closer look.
