is a young polio-afflicted boy who, like so many, ran away
from home to escape domestic violence and ended up in Bombay.
He was rescued from the street by an English NGO working in
South Bombay who arranged for him to go to a special school
for handicapped children at Pune, near to Bombay. I later
heard that this school is on the third floor and the children
have to crawl up the stairs to get to class! Nonetheless Mohammed
is one of the lucky ones: most of the boys rescued by this
organisation end up on the street again. Street life is far
more attractive than school.
