This means washing him, feeding him, changing his nappies and sitting with him holding his hand.
He wakes up smiling every morning and his giggles can be heard throughout the day, unless he needs a bowel movement – then the laughing stops, until that’s done. Then it starts again.

Sanjay came to shuktara in 2000. He always wanted to work and he always wanted his own family.
Since working at Shuktara Cakes he has saved enough money to rent a house outside of the city and in February he married a young woman called Munni and they have a baby coming in a few months.
The security of shuktara and his job at Shuktara Cakes has meant that he has been able to do this and he is SO proud.
Today he is also making us all very proud too.
cojean in Paris who sponsor Shuktara Cakes Training Centre have sent Lau over to Kolkata to work with the team for one year. As they have had a busy week and Lau just arrived, they decided to go to Shankarpur to get to know each other and plan the year ahead.
Of course, any trip away means that Sunil automatically gets included!
Here are some of the photos they took…
Saraswati is the goddess of wisdom and learning. Every year the celebration at shuktara is anticipated by everyone with great excitement. An elaborate statue of the goddess is chosen and taken to the house. On the roof a home for the goddess is constructed the night before with fresh flowers – this year there were pink egg cartons also to add to the festive atmosphere. On the day of Saraswati Puja everyone puts on their best clothes and participate in the ritual of the goddess by chanting Sanskrit and throwing handfuls of fresh flower petals to accentuate the prayers.
