"Bhopal: 30 Years of Tragedy"
Aadite, 9, a disabled boy affected by microcephaly, cerebral palsy and malnutrition, is watching cartoons while laying motionless on a bed inside his home in Kabit Pura, near the abandoned Union Carbide (now DOW Chemical) industrial complex in Bhopal, central India. Aadite's father, Raju, a '1984 Gas Survivor', died in March 2013 at the age of 32, due to lungs failure. Because of his mother's need to act as the family's breadwinner, Aadite cannot attend the programs run by 'Chingari Trust Rehabilitation Centre', one of two vital medical institutions funded by 'The Bhopal Medical Appeal'. Lakshmi, 29, works six days a week as a cleaner, and Aadite is looked after by his two sisters Mayuri, 12, Mahag, 7, and his younger brother Anuj, 5. None of the siblings in this family are attending school or any kind of practical education.
