As part of my assignment for a seven-month course in Child Development, Special Needs and Learning,i I undertook the case study of a child named Devraj living in Borkunda village in the Hoshangabad district of Madhya Pradesh. The village has a tribal population of about 1000-1200 people and most of them are daily-wage earners. Devraj is an 11-yearold boy who has a disability in his right hand. His parents abandoned him when he was very young because of his disability, and he lives with his maternal grandmother. Devraj does not have an identity proof (birth certificate or Aadhaar Card) because of which he is deprived of all government benefits and schemes. The government school teacher in the village enrolled him in the school on the basis of a letter from the gram panchayat secretary. He is not regular to school and prefers to spend the whole day roaming around and playing with his friend, Gopi.
