Ravi - Embracing self-reliance

Ravi was only 6-years old when he lost his father. His mother, though an educated woman, was a homemaker. Ravi is reading book in library in Deepalaya School Kalkaji ExtensionGoing by the family tradition, his father never allowed her to work after marriage. When his father died, it became all-the-more difficult for her to find a job to serve Ravi and his little sister. Finally, she landed up in an export house and started cutting threads and was paid on piece rate basis. However, the compensation was a pittance compared to the kind of money required for educating the kids. Somehow she managed to educate Ravi till 5th in a private school and enrolled his sister in a government school but then the school shifted to a different place. It was difficult to afford the to and fro expenses.
