“Compassion is the basis of all morality.”
(Arthur Schopenhauer – German philosopher, 1788-1860)

This young boy belongs to Guria in Varanasi (Benaras).
He would like to have a normal childhood like any other child in the world.
Guria is a Human Rights organisation fighting against the sexual exploitation of women and children, particularly those forced into prostitution and trafficking.
Manju and her husband Ajeet Singh are running this non-profit organisation at great personal risk, providing shelter and hope to many children and facing many difficulties from all those who would like to use those children as a second generation prostitution.

There are many ways to help and give a kind of support to Guria, this is its website, and you may contact Manju and Ajeet at

A special dedication to my friend Benu Mohanlal who filled my car one morning with clothes, toys and books for those kids as I was on my way to Varanasi.
