Bhuvaneshwari is thirteen, and comes from a very poverty-stricken family. Her father has a drinking problem, and used to physically abuse his wife. In such cases of domestic abuse, many women in India have nowhere to turn to, and Bhuvaneshwari’s mother was forced to leave her husband and raise Bhuvaneshwari alone.
