The Story of Tiger
Tiger is a 14 year old boy who lived at Railway Platform when Rescue Junction open and he started to come to Rescue Junction everyday. His attendance was almost everyday. He started to read and write and interested to study but unfortunately this came late in his life.
He lost his father when he was 10 years old and his mother got married with another person so we say he got stepfather and that was the main reason for him to be at Railway platform and his stepfather and mother lived at Slum area in a rented small damp room but last year his mother passed away but Tiger has two brothers and two sisters – ages 15,13,11& 8 and after death of his mother he returned his native village at Rafiganj with all his brothers and sister but one of the persons from Rafiganj took them (all four) to Bhabhua in Bihar for work to Brick factory where he worked 3 months with all his brothers and sisters but again that Brick factory is closed, and they all were shifted at Varanasi in new Brick factory where one of his younger sister is still working in a house as a maid servant, and three worked at Varanasi Brick factory from where Tiger tried to run away but once caught by the person who brought him to Varanasi from Rafiganj and they beat him and threatened to kill him, they made them labour hard without money just on the basis of food but once again Tiger tried and ran away and come to Rescue Junction and now he is at Rescue Junction but he wanted to bring all his sisters and brother to Rescue Junction where they can stay and study, So he needs help either staff can go with him to Varanasi to bring all his brothers and sisters or we may contact other N.G.O or Police.
