Tajik School Alphabet Ceremony: The Letters

Figure 1.--Here is one of the letter badges that the children wear on their Takik ceremonial clothes. Image courtesy of William Fergusson.

Each child wears a different letter of the alphebet on their costume which they take very seriously. Each considers himself an expert on that letter. These are colourful letters showing the Russian alphebet. The letter M in the picture is the Russian letter for 'T'. The Russian 'M' has curley tails at the bottom of the letter.
