Lumos

Rita’s life was an open book too dark for anybody to read. She spent her childhood working in the coal mines of Joharpur, Karnataka tending to the needs of her younger brother. With no parents alive, all the responsibilities had come upon her. She played the role of the bread winner, the mother, the friend, the guardian. Her life rotated around him. Her day started and ended at the dark coal mines and the only thing that kept her going was the thought of him going to sleep without an empty stomach. As he grew, so did his needs and so did her time spent at mines… Finally rays of hope reached her life’s dark abyss when he grew up and said “Lumos”
