At the age of 20, Sindhutai was left for the dead by her husband with a 17-day-old girl child who she had given birth to in a cow shed. She walked to her parent’s house for shelter, but her family turned her away. ⁠

With nowhere else to go and a baby to feed, Sindhutai started begging in trains and on the streets in order to survive. Fearing for her safety and that of her daughter, she spent her nights in cemeteries and cowsheds.⁠
It was during these difficult times that Sindhutai began spending time with orphaned children & realized how difficult life was for them. ⁠

She adopted around a dozen orphans & took on the responsibility of keeping them clothed & fed,even if it meant begging for longer hours.
