Childhood is the happiest period of creation. The family loves and primp their kids, making them the core of their life. Even then, the same upbringing can be terrible if a child is deprived of a home and a family. India is among the most populous nations and a major chunk of this community are children.  Here I believe great misery relies on being an orphan or leading a life without shelter.  It's always written, "Almighty god assigns individuals to planet earth to bring a change in society." Sindhutai Sapkal becomes one of those who bring an immense change within society. Being the mother of the orphans, Sindhutai has become the gift from god to thousands of poor children. As we describe Sindhutai Sapkal, a quite typical Indian lady with an extraordinary deed towards society. She is a mother of nearly 1200 children including her daughter and sons.

A lady at age 71 tried hiding life scars behind her gorgeous smile...

SindhuTai was born on 14 November 1948, that is, the day of the children, with an enthusiastic and interested temperament from childhood onwards.  She adored going to class yet it was against the desire of her mom, in any case, her dad anyway consistently needed to teach her. She continued her study until age 9 in 4th grade. Sindhutai got married at age 10 to a 30-year-old man. She was not permitted to go to school by her In-laws and after that left school. At the age of 19, she gave birth to two sons and afterward a beautiful daughter at age 20. One day she was miserably thrown out of the house by her husband.

It was during those difficult times when she understood how troublesome it would be for shelter-less children and chose to accomplish something for them. Her journey begins after adopting a child named "Deepak", whom she spotted on the railroad line. Later she adopted 16 children.Begging the whole day on streets and becoming “tai” to homeless ones…Sindhu Tai was never born as a beggar, however, situations forced her to come and ask for the livelihood on the streets.  Several times, in the evenings, she prepared rotis on dead people’s burnings. She ate as well as distributed them within homeless, needy children.

As a mother, she holds them all into her lap….

She became “Tai “of half-dead three hungry kids whom she rescued from a place. She's distributed food and clothes to poor children after begging on the street.
