"We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today ..."

He beat his social odds to become a champ!
Karma  is his real name. He hails from the state of Assam. Was forced to leave home six years ago due to the bestial  cruelty he endured at home from his father who was brutal in every sense of the word. That was in 2005. Today this boy who still has horrible memories of those dark days is our champion.
Karma won the gold medal at the recently concluded state level  judo competition for juniors. He was in the local news and his school gave him a grand reception. We share his glory too as he is our boy!  His first in the state takes him now to the national championship. Karma is a boy with great talents.
This is not his first. He has been to the nationals earlier too. He is an artist, plays the key-board, is good at boxing, is great in the play ground, is our official ‘hair dresser’ and above all he is much loved and admired by his companions.
What makes me proud of Karma is his humility and sense to gratitude to God. He loves to pray  and is focused in life. His aim is to be a physician so that he can serve the poor. “ My mother used to tell me that I should be a doctor!” I am sure Karma will achieve his life’s ambition and  will serve God in His brothers and sisters,  especially the poor!”
