by Darshan Gajara

Imagine your Evening and Nights without the Lights. Yeah, I know that one can’t even imagine about this. But there are people in our very own Rural Areas of India, who not only have to imagine but also suffer from this Light Shortage. Their most basic activities at the home can’t be met with the need. In order to fight this obstacle, here is this Initiative “Light Up Rural India”. This is supposed to be achieved by distribution of Solar Lanterns which are eco as well as cost friendly.

She was pregnant too,

and her baby was due,

Manoeuvring a Mumbai Marketplace

Going to shop
in a bustling marketplace
