Over 60 students are residing in the rehabilitation centre. They are spending days together with resolution that they would do something in life and will not be dependent on others.
“We will study and do something in life. We will prove that we are not born to be dependent on others," said all those interviewed.
All these girls are hapless as either of parents is languishing in jails on the charge of criminal offences.
“I will become a doctor one day,” said Dhireshwari Barik.
Lizarani Bhuyan, another inmate of the centre, is also a doctor aspirant. “I will be studying so much so that I will become a doctor one day and serve people,” said Liza.
Speaking about the girls, Nirojlaxmi Mahaptra, who manages the Ashram, said more than 60 daughters are staying in the centre. “All are energetic in their attitude. While some of them aspire to become doctors, some others want to be teachers and some others aim to pilots,” said Mohapatra.
She too informed that some of past inmates have brought laurels to the Ashram by achieving success in their life.
