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 parents’ 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.
