  THE MINORITY REPORT Freed from bonded labor but bonded to new problems

Chularam Chaudhari was very young when his fellow Kamaiyas were declared free and no more ‘bonded.’ That meant, unlike the older generations of Kamaiyas, he would not be forced to spend his whole life serving at somebody’s house. That let him dream of a beautiful and prosperous life ahead – that of a nice job, a pretty wife, a cozy house to call their own and happy kids.

Fourteen years down the line, Chularam is not an inch closer to his aspirations. He does have a family, of course, but the realization that he is not providing them a good life haunts him ever so often.
