Before my first visit to the cemetery, I could only imagine a bleak rather morbid life for these kids I'd only just heard about. In search of lesser documented realities my opinion about these kids took on a different shade of bleakness as I visited them over the past couple of days. The 15-16 families living in the graveyard earn their livelihood from the graveyard. From digging graves to managing small parts of funeral services, their lives are on the whole a literal graveyard shift. These children of grave diggers like any other children find entertainment from their surroundings. Walking, working and playing amongst the dead are a grisly reality they live everyday. Dropping out of school to help their families earn only makes their restriction to the graveyard grounds more absolute. With little to no link with the outside world, the terrifying realities of their lives reflect through passing happiness in their eyes and in their games, as they live their lives like any other children; with the exception that they live amidst the dead. Getting to know these children through the kind people at Hand in Hand Charitable Trust, who help these otherwise neglected children of our society through vocational and more importantly emotional support to establish them as equal and non disadvantaged members of the society has been both humbling and eye opening.
