KARMA, OUR GOLD MEDALIST – He beat his social odds to become a champ!

Karma is his real name. He hails from the state of Assam. Was forced to leave home six years ago due to the bestial cruelty he endured at home from his father who was brutal in every sense of the word. That was in 2005. Today this boy who still has horrible memory of those dark days is our champion.
Karma won the gold medal at the recently concluded state level judo competition for juniors. He was in the local news and his school gave him a grand reception. We share his glory too as he is our boy! His first in the state takes him now to the national championship. Karma is a boy with great talents. He is an artist, plays the key-board, is good at boxing, is great in the play ground and loves Jesus whom he wants to receive . He is not baptized as most of our boys are. We wait till they complete 18! He pleads with me “ I want to receive Jesus and feel sad when others go to Communion. Please help me Father!” I told him to be patient for a while more. He wants to win at the national and receive Holy Communion and offer his medal to Jesus!

What makes me proud of Karma is his humility and sense to gratitude to God. He is calm and is focused in life. His aim is to be a physician so that he can serve the poor. “ My mother used to tell me that I should be a doctor!” I am sure Karma will achieve his life’s ambition and will serve Jesus in His brothers and sisters especially the poor!”
Let us pray for Karma.
