Kismotara, 4.Unknown illness and malnutrition.Kismotara's father is baffled as to what exactly is wrong with his daughter, but she suffers regularly from fits that have all but robbed her of the power of speach. He is terrified of the effect this will have on her education, though he knows it may be a moot point given that no school in the area would give an unregistered refugee so much as a second glance. He admits this wasn't what he'd expected - he left Burma under the misguided notion that he would be welcomed by his fellow Muslims in Bangladesh - but says that the only thing that could possibly make him consider returning home would be the advent of democracy, something he believes he is in no danger of seeing soon.
