Studying without clothes: Story of Sangay Wangmo

I felt a sudden jerk in my throat, my eyes got numb with tears and i felt my heart crying when i saw the video of this little girl called Sangay wangmo. She had a face filled with innocence, having put on an old clothe given by other people.
As she spoke, her voice made something pinch in me and as she went on telling the story of struggle she was going through, thick tears rolled down my cheek as i couldn't resist.
We tend to complain about going to school, quarrel with parents to do the homework, fight with teachers for having got a scolding for not doing the work properly. Well this little girl is instead fighting her emotions, defending herself against all pro and cons of the pathetic life she is having only to pursue 'education'. Among st  the 8 siblings, she is the only one going to school. After the death of her father, mother became regular with drinking, her three elder siblings dropped the school, three younger ones were given away for adoption and one found his way to religious path. She was the only one who refused to drop school even though she knew her mother won't be able to support her. Hand on hand with the thorns of life, she continued her schooling with the peck of supports she got from the people feeling pity on her and moved on with constant pace.
 I salute her for her determination and hope with hopeful prayers that she achieves what she dreams of life and get what she wants.

  1. It is sad and disheartening to know that this thing exists among us. I can feel that we are brought up in heaven with all parental supports and love. We need to go to the ground reality of our society. We should help them come up. She shouldn't compromise her education because of her poverty.
    She is in need of kind hands. Hope she is noticed and prayers that she receives all necessary help. She should not be just seen in youtube and social media. She should be seen in reality. Let her feel little bit of heaven among her struggles and obstacles.
