Sanjib Shaw marries and shuktara is invited!

We have been very lucky at shuktara to have met Sanjib Shaw. For the last few years he has been a generous and committed supporter of our homes and this weekend he got married to Nandini.

Over the three days of wedding celebrations all of the shuktara girls, boys and young people have been invited and involved. Yesterday evening (26th February) everyone at shuktara attended the wedding reception.

We thank Sanjib for all his support and wish him and Nandini much love and happiness together.

Raja has a daughter, Oindrila

Pappu had not wanted to tell anyone our news about Raja until he felt that the time was right. He feels now that everyone ought to know that he got married!

In February 2014 he married a deaf girl called Riya and they now have a daughter, Oindrila who was born on 28th August 2015.

Raja and his family live independently as do Kedar and Sanjay. Every day Raja stops by to visit us and continues to do his painting in the shuktara boy’s house.
