Tara (name changed) is from a less privileged family. Her father’s drinking habits lead the family to a lot of hardships. In a fit of rage he would abuse the girl and the other members of the family. However, he died after a few years due to cancer. It became very difficult for the entire family to sustain. Her mother too passed away a few years ago, living Tara and her sister, orphans. Being young both of them found it challenging to fend for themselves and earn their daily bread. Some generous neighbours took care of them till some time. But that was not enough to support the girls. Tara started looking for work; though quite young she knew it was the responsibility of the eldest sister to take care of the younger sister. She could not come upon anything substantial and then she met Meena (name changed). Meena proposed her to go to Delhi and work in the catering service for a living.With hope and courage in abundance, Tara reached Delhi. In no time she came to the realisation that she was in a wrong place, where she was employed as a maid. Her tormentors made her go through hell and she was physically and mentally abused every day. Her salary was withheld. This continued for a couple of years. She succeeded in fleeing from the clutches of these people after 2 years.She was rescued by Delhi police. KMWSC intervened and collaborated with Justice and Care. Soon she found herself in the secure environ of Sanskar Home in Dilsad Garden on 12.7.2016. In no time KMWSC and Justice and Care took up Tara’s issue and began working on her restoration. Once all procedures were over, three of our enthusiast and dedicated staff, Ravishankar Roy, Kamalkrishna Halder and Bithika Halder went to Delhi to bring Tara home. On 8.11.2016 with the help of the staff from Justice and Care and Delhi CWC; KMWSC staff met the girl. CWC Delhi ordered the staff to bring her to Kolkata. 11.11.2016 will be remembered by Tara and us. Tara and KMWSC staff finally reached Kolkata at 10:45 PM. She was taken to Sanlaap Home. She has been produced in CWC of South 24 Paraganas, on 12.11.2016, and her stay at Sanlaap has been extended for 45 days.
Tara’s tears wouldn’t stop when she met her grandparents recently. She was at a loss of words. She held on to them and sobbed till she could gain strength to speak. Their joy knew no bound; they had given up all hope of seeing Tara again.
