Shankar Kumar (13) is a semi orphan child at Lord Buddha Home for Children run by NBJK with support from Stichting Kinderhulp Bodhgaya, the Netherlands at village- Silounja near Bodhgaya. He was born on 01 June 2001 at village- Bhurkunda, block-Barachatti, district-Gaya (Bihar) as a son of Gita Devi and late Shiva Bhuian. Shankar belongs to most exploited caste called Mushar under scheduled caste category. His father was an agriculture laborer and the whole family was dependent upon his meager earning. One day some criminals have killed Shankar’s father and her mentally imbalanced mother started begging. She was unable to take care of Shankar and his two siblings. Asha Devi, the grandmother of Shankar and some sympathetic villagers have approached LBHC to enroll this boy at the home. After ascertaining truthfulness of the case, LBHC management committee has introduced Shankar in November 2007. Currently he studies in class VIII at Manav Bharti National School, Gaya with good result. He likes cricket, drawing and music. Shankar wants to be an artist.
