Mankind functions in a way where we want to feel comfortable, we want to f...

Eagerly clutching his hands and jumping up to the sight of any rare visitors.This reality is the sad truth for more than 140 million children worldwide according to UNICEF. Though t...

This was a place my grandmother has repeatedly told me about. A place that I longed to go to, but had to wait till the time had come. Finally, when it was the summer of 2016, I went home to Kolkata, India. My grandmother then took me to this place she always talked about. A place, which very little like any other, changed my views on many aspects and taught me a great deal.This was a simple home. A home owned by a dedicated family rehabilitating abandoned, differently abled, and ill children. Up...
