12-year old Kal Kumari doesn’t go to school or play. She works at her house. While she aspires to become a doctor or a police officer, her father asks her to stay at home and manage the house because she doesn’t have her mother. Life has been tough for Kal Kumari. Her father is a rickshaw puller and at times he works in the farms.
