Less-privileged people in Tharparkar, Sindh suffer hunger and thirst.

While people were born amidst celebration, he was born amidst hunger. Malnutrition enveloped him and pathogens grasped him. The barren field promised starvation and the deforestation vowed no rainfall for years to come. People thought at times, “There was no reason to live.” Suffering stretched in front of him and all the other people. 7 years were passed with mere orts to feed over.

Painful fate! He died the day a raindrop hit his nose.
