Born blind

This young mother still lived in her husband's family village when her first child was conceived and born at home. Her doctors have suggested that her own malnutrition during pregnancy was a contributing factor to her daughter's blindness. Her son, now almost one year old, was born in a Chandigarh hospital and is considerably healthier, even though the family spend a large portion of its meagre income on care for his older sister.
