“The lights are a boon”, chattered Indira Bisra. A beautiful smile on her radiant face brightened under the light bulb of her otherwise dingy household. Indiraji’s next door neighbor, Sumita Tutu pointed out her child studying under a light bulb in their house. “The lights help our kids to study & make our work in the night easier. “- Indira Bisra and Sumita Tutu are both residents of Village Royal Ghutu, West Bengal.
“We tried to make packets for sale & opened a grocery shop with the help of Art of Living volunteers, but this had to stop because there were no street lights & we had only torches for light after dusk. Now we can start these activities again”- Kamli Hembrom
