Girl pretends to be a boy

I believe this movie was supposed to be taking place in India.  The plot is only boys are allowed to work and in this family there is only a girl so her mother (or grandmother) has the idea where she will pretend to be a boy to work otherwise the family will starve.  The scene I remember is where all the boys are at some type of school and they are all naked inside holes in the ground full of water with only their heads visible.  The teacher is telling them how to bathe properly when he notices the girl trying to hide in the back of the room.  He makes her come out and She does not want to be caught as a girl so she hurries and the teacher makes a remark like “this boy is a nymph.”
