Hi, my name is

23 December 2009     Patiala, Punjab

Gurkeerat Singh lives in the Patiala District with his family. He loves eating apples and aspires to one day be a police officer. Until recently, his father provided for the family by selling slippers on the street, earning only enough to barely scrape by. They live in a small house that they had bought from a friend, however, recently their friend decided to sell that house again without Gurkeerat’s father’s permission- the rightful owner. He has since decided to take his friend to court. And if Court fees were not enough already, in 2017, Gurkeerat’s father fell while repairing the roof of his home, and now is out of work and neck deep in medical bills as well. It doesn't end here, while at the hospital he also got diagnosed with a severe heart blockage, which will cost him 150,000 rupees to clear out. Gurkeerat’s father now struggles to keep his family fed and faces the dilemma of sending his kids to school or not.
