Children's Stories

From the time he was born, Pravin's parents wanted only the best for him. They both worked long hours in a Kathmandu carpet factory, and despite their meager income, they managed to send Pravin to school until he was seven years old.

Then Pravin's brother was born—and Pravin's parents were forced to make a choice that no parent should have to make. No longer able to afford Pravin's tuition, they withdrew him from school. Pravin spent his days at home taking care of his brother, longing to join his former classmates.
