Rumi Kumari, a student of Kastuba Gandhi Balika Vidyalay (KGBV), Burmu, is all set to appear for her Board Examination for Class-XII. Being a child of a bonded labour, life has not ushered in smooth roads for her. Sixth among eight of her siblings, her father was a bounded labour. In a bid to improve the economic conditions at home, Rumi’s parents had sent her to Patna to work as a domestic help. She was only 9-10 years old that time. From Patna she was trafficked to some other city. Her parents had sent her through some recruiting agent. Somehow she managed to come back from that life of ‘domestic help’, to her village.
