Guria and Prity

Kali Puja is the holiday after Durga Puja, celebrated right before Diwali, the festival of lights. The exterior of Bengali houses are lit up with dozens, sometimes hundreds of little candles and fireworks start going off as soon as the sun goes down.

A visit to the girls' home, Lula Bari, was a wonderful way to celebrate the festival of Kali, the goddess of Kolkata. A few visitors from abroad were invited to meet the girls and young women of shuktara, sharing sweets and laughter.

Abandoned almost a year ago now Muniya’s home is with shuktara.

Just over a year ago Muniya, like many other children with disabilities, was abandoned by her mother and left alone on the street. Some, like her, are lucky enough to find safety in places like shuktara! This photo was taken today by Pappu Mishra (Chairman of shuktara) in Lula Bari, our girls house. It is the place that Muniya now knows as her own home and we will never abandon her.
