Did I show this little gift to you? This is a gift from Divya Nair, my ex-colleague and the ‘soon-to-be-the-next-prime-minister” of India. A nesting doll from Russia. They are known as matryoshka dolls. Mine is a set of 5.
The word matryoshka (матрёшка) came from the Russian female first name Matryona. They are also known as babushka dolls which in Russian means grandmother!
