Flower power

Guljan, meaning 'flower', used to be a great horse rider. She could ride with one hand and hold a child with the other, and sometimes had to race to hospital in this way if one was sick. She has facial tattoos, which used to be a part of Kuchi culture but are now only seen in older women.
