Suraj and Mother

This is Suraj. His mother thinks he is about two and a half years old, and she doesn't know how old she is herself.

 

One day, she was cooking in their home when an oil lamp fell to the floor and exploded. The fire burned Suraj's foot, causing him incredible pain and inhibiting his ability to walk or run. The other children don't like to play with him since he can't keep up, and even though they know that he was burned in an accident, they tease him frequently.
