A woman was sued for a murder. Since she can’t afford bail, she was imprisoned for 19 years. During this period, she was deserted by her family, while the court overlooked her appeal and simply ignored her. Thanks to her son, who was born in the prison, he tightened up his belt and saved up the money to stand on bail and hiring a lawyer; hence his mother was discharged from the prison recently.

When Kamhaiya was financially independent, he saved money to stand on bail for his mother. He then visited Allahabad for the first time on his own to hire a lawyer. Going through all the obstacles, he eventually found a lawyer willing to take the case. Now, what Kumariwishes is her son a merry life, “I hope he could get married, and then I can have my family too .”


This is a real life story in India about abandon and undertaking. The deep connection between the mother and son clings to my mind. placed inside the exhibition hall and area facing the sea)
