15 foetuses found dumped in Ahmedabad garbage bin. Some were as old as seven to eight months (Indian Express)

And so when we find a story like Bharti Kumari, a 12-yr old girl who has taken on educating 50 other children in her village...we are humbled and reminded that each one of us has a moral duty to get involved and make a difference.
