Yoga

Yoga

Morning starts for the boys at Bal Ashram with exercise, prayer, laughter and yoga practice on a beautiful roof terrace above their dormitory. Yoga is taught by a former student and by Sumedha Kailash who both runs Bal ashram and is the mother figure for all these rescued boys.

Fear and Failure

Standing outside a police station in Jaipur, Rajasthan, waiting to film a carefully planned raid and rescue of children trafficked from the poorest areas of India to make bangle bracelets for the tourist industry, I am reminded of being offered these just yesterday touring Jaipur’s Amber Fort.

The Visionaries

The Visionaries

It is the day Kailash and Sumedha arrive at Bal Ashram. As Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, yesterday Kailash met with world leaders at six different locations and today has flown from Bangladesh to Delhi, driven four hours from Delhi to Viratnagar and Bal Ashram and is now engulfed in boys as the car arrives. No rest for the weary – though “weary” is never a description for Kailash or his wife, Sumedha.
