Mumtaz Madonna

Mumtaz was the beauty of her little gang of Triplicane street kids in Madras (Chennai). She daydreamed about opening a hair "saloon," but wound up falling in love with Haniffa, the local Romeo. They finally married when Mumtaz was about five months pregnant.

 

My friend Mr. Robert bought their house in a slum near Marina Beach, as well as all the utensils you see in the photo - which are kept very tidily on the shelves.
