MotherIndia - A movie review and dvd give away

Updated on April 22, 2013

Please let me know if you are interested in winning a free dvd of MotherIndia in the comment section. I will hold a drawing on April 30, 2013. Thank You!

It shouldn’t hurt to be a child. So it says on my Arizona license plate anyway.

Yet for the 31 million abandoned and orphaned children in India and the 100+ million more around the world, pain is their way of life. Whether they are left alone when their parents die from AIDS or accidents, lost and never found, abandoned and unwanted or running away from abuse, these children find their way to the streets. Here they gather in the gutters, abandoned buildings, public places or anywhere else they can find a corner to rest. Here they live in pain. Empty stomachs know the pain of hunger as they make barely enough to eat each day. They live in physical pain from lack of medical attention, loss of limbs and beatings handed out by the cops, merchants, and other children on the streets. Some must survive the unspeakable pain that comes with rape and sexual abuse. There is pain in watching those around them die from their lifestyle. But most of all, there is the deep emotional pain of being unwanted, unknown and unloved.

MotherIndia is the story of 25 children drawn together and trying to etch out an existence in a rundown railroad station in Tenali, India. Brought together by the rails, they live as a family, with the youngest only 3 years old. You will hear the stories of how they came to be here and get a glimpse of their daily life as they struggle to survive. Watch them laugh and play and smile as they make the best of what life has offered them. See their tears as they confess their worries and sorrow. Fell the weight of the world they carry on their shoulders. Let your heart break when you learn how they deal with the pain, knowing it could cost them their lives. They will share their hopes and dreams with you, dreams of living in a house or having a job and earning money instead of begging. They dream of having a normal life; of being just like you and me.

In the end you will be challenged to consider what you can do to help. I encourage you to research the different organizations that help these orphans and pray about making a decision to help them. To make a difference in the life of just one, will make all the difference in the world.
