A book titled “Eighteen Million Question Marks: The Street Children of India” is published by Vatsalya. It is based on our work with underprivileged children whom we met on the streets,in the Juvenile Justice Homes run by government and some others who we had a goodfortune to meet well in time and brought to Udayan. It covers the issues of these children from different perspectives, touching upon their lives as well as the policies and interventions meant for their care, protection and growth. The major part of the book is based on findings of a research study undertaken in Rajsathanâ€™s Juvenile Justice Homes including several in-depth case studies. We have also included a chapter about Udayan in it as it is being seen as a possible model to be replicated but more importantly the book talks about how to prevent the situations that contribute in increasing the number of children on the streets.
The book is priced at Rs. 450 (US$18) and all the profit generated from the sale would go to Udayan. If you wish to buy a copy please Click Here
