Susmita is the youngest girl at Rising Lotus and she is quite the character. She moves around like an old lady, slowly shuffling her feet next to each other. However, every once in a while, she gets this bounding energy and just seems to bounce all around the place.
She has also become really interested in anything with buttons, especially gadgets. While Volunteer Metha Skylab was staying at Rising Lotus, Susmita would stare at the buttons on his camera and every once in a while he would catch her fingers slowly reaching for them. She already seemed to know what most of the buttons would do. Whenever Metha would show her photos in his camera, Susmita knew which buttons zoom and which go back and which go forward. Budding photographer? We shall see.
Susmita reads English pretty well but has a challenging time understanding everything when English is spoken to her. She is learning though.
When she doesn’t get her way, Susmita puts on her signature sulky, sad face act. Though comical, we’ve learned to tell her it won’t work and walk away. Sure enough she quickly move back to the group asking to play again.
