GUWAHATI: Devabrata And Santana Sharma Married Couple Spent Most Of Their Lives Teaching Young People And Companionship With Children. But When It Came To Their Personal Lives, They Remained Voluntarily Childless For 25 Years, Until A Recent Tragedy In The Tea Gardens In The North Changed Their Lives.
More Than 150 People Died After Consuming Illegal Drink In February And Jorhat, And Many Of Their Children Were Orphans. The Sharmas Then Boarded To Maintain Four Orphan Brothers And Sisters, Who Were Handed Over To The Couple In April By The Child Welfare Committee (CWC).
Devabrata Is The Director Of Jorhat College, While Santana Is The Director Of Jorhat Jatiya Vidyalay - A Local Medium School Working With Community Support. The Halmira Tea Plantation, Where The Children Lived With Their Parents, Had Registered The Maximum Number Of Victims.
The Sharmas, Now In Fifty, Enjoying The Experience As Parents. It Was A Conscious Decision To Stay Childless Because We've Both Spent Our Time Serving Society. But The Decision That Was Taken 25 Years Ago With The Priority For Society, Had To Change For Another Social Reason, Devabrata Said. The Couple Named The Four Children Marom (11), Seneh (9), Ador (7) And Hepah (3).
If The Panel Of The CWC Is Satisfied With The Grroms Of The Children, The Couple Can Get The Right To Adopt All Four.
