Jyoti ever glow with flare

                            Can this Jyoti (meaning ‘flame’) ever glow with flare?

This is the story of Jyoti (12) from Kalapani village. Both her parents are labourers. When asked if she likes to study, Jyoti’s answer is an emphatic yes. Though she is enrolled in class 2 (at the age of 12!!!), she casually attends school. She often needs to stay home to look after her younger siblings and to do all the household work. Besides, she needs to help her labourer parents with their work whenever they obtain any petty contract to maximise the earnings.
