the first of its kind in India where foster care is already rare and rarer still is the adoption of a 15-year-old spastic and autistic boy However Gaurav Deepak Kamble now 17 is finally settling into a new life where he has a permanent school and parents and sisters he can legally call his own He was nine months old when he was put in foster care under the Kamble family Before this Gaurav suffered rejection by several Indian and foreign couples for 15 years In 2015 the Kambles adopted him months before the Central Adoption Regional Agency’s guidelines changed making the process online They are now a family of eight “We knew no one can take better care of him than us” says Deepak Kamble 45 his adoptive father To every inquisitive neighbour he now explains how Gaurav was initially their foster child but now the adopted son “I have never seen such a case before” says Najma Goriawala consultant with the Indian Association for Promotion of Adoption and Child Welfare (IAPA) the NGO that handled Gaurav’s case In a tiny Bandra chawl the Kambles have fostered over 100 infants for over three decades Gaurav was the toughest to handle He is a hyperactive child who keeps them on their toes When he sings the chawl residents joke it will be hard to stop him “He sings while bathing We have to keep knocking to make him hurry” says Kamble with a laugh as he looks admiringly at Gaurav who is loudly singing a Sairat song his fingers drumming a tabla Deepak’s mother Mathura Kamble 65 began foster care in 1983 to earn an extra living after her husband retired from the army with an injured leg Her first foster child was Raju who had skin infection “But I took good care of him I already had three children so I knew how to manage infants” she says She would foster a baby for a few months who would eventually get adopted and a new orphan would come to them In 2000 IAPA placed nine-month-old Gaurav under her foster care Till then Mathura had fostered children with HIV heart ailments and disabilities Most were adopted abroad With Gaurav however they had to encounter challenges like never before He would lie in one place unable to move and wail His eye balls would roll over showing only the whites and Deepak’s four daughters would get scared Along with IAPA the Kambles visited paediatric doctors and started a daily two-hour session of physiotherapy for him Mathura remembers missing her mother’s funeral for his session “His growth depended on it” the sexagenarian says Doctors had predicted that Gaurav would never be able to move around Spasticity causes a muscle control disorder Furthermore he suffered from autism “I decided to help him till he lives” Mathura says She would massage him twice a day dig a sand pit and cover him so that he would struggle to move his musclesWhen he turned three he showed visible development His movements and speech improved – he would play with Deepak’s daughters and with other foster kids Kambles looked after The family and the NGO then started his speech and occupational therapy In the ninth standard now Gaurav says he wants to become a singer or a runner when he grows up (Source: Express photo by Nirmal Harindran) Between 2000 and 2014 IAPA showed his profile to several couples “But he was rejected everywhere” says Savita Nagpurkar IAPA’s adoption in-charge In 2006 Mathura’s daughter and Deepak’s sister Sujata found a special-needs school in Pune for Gaurav Three years later he shifted with her “My sister got trained as a special educator for Gaurav There was a different level of attachment with him” Kamble says People would ask “Ye kaun hai(Who is he)” and the Kambles would say “our son” Though they knew he would go one day It was only when he turned 14 and the Child Welfare Committee stepped in to suggest he be put under permanent institutional care “By then we knew no one would adopt him” Nagpurkar says The Kambles feared Gaurav’s development would reverse at a children’s home The decision to adopt was instant Usha Kamble 40 his adoptive mother and Deepak’s wife smiles “We could not part with him” On January 23 2015 Gaurav stood in the sessions court The judge asked him his name and he said for the first time “Gaurav Deepak Kamble” His adoption wasn’t without its hurdles though He could not be adopted under the Hindu law since he was over 12 years so they applied under the Juvenile Justice Act “I call them what I called them from the start — papa mummy and aayi” Gaurav says He discusses politics cricket and Olympics with great interest He is hyperactive though and requires daily medication to calm him down “I have been scolded only once” he says “I had taken my friends and sisters to a river in our village in Satara Papa searched for three hours When he found us he took out his belt to hit” Gaurav’s day starts at 7 am and he attends school from 1130 am onwards He cycles for two hours to channelise his extra energy “At night I play football with my cousin” he says The family claims he never sits calmly “He bosses over us” younger sister Hetal chips in Gaurav is in class IX now and regularly travels between Pune and Mumbai for his education “I want to become a singer or runner” he says adding that he did not know what his future would be like until his adoption Gaurav has been one of the few to get a foster home as most orphans are put in institutional care until their adoption Awareness in India is still low about foster care For instance the IAPA has only 10 foster families in Mumbai “I want to set up an organisation that helps such children some place that employs autistic people” says Kamble who has a small travel business Gaurav’s adoption has became a story of not just inspirational social work but of love and pride for their chawl “The day

At the upper end of the distributionie those with incomes exceeding Rs 700 per capitaare classified as relatively affluent About 20 per cent of the participants were thus relatively affluent It is surmised that this is a direct consequence of high NREGA wages (relative to agricultural wages) that weakens the self-selection of the poor in workfare In Maharashtrathe participants were overwhelmingly non-poor (7178 per cent)based on a poverty cut-off point of Rs 436 The acutely poor were a tiny fraction (about 11 per cent) while the relatively affluent were a staggering 3768 per cent Targeting in Andhra Pradesh was dismal toowith the non-poor accounting for 6950 per cent of the participantsbased on a poverty cut-off point of Rs 352 Acutely poor were a bare 9 per cent while the relatively affluent were more than a quarter (2650 per cent) of the total participants We used the distribution of days workedto analyse the skewness of the distribution of the benefits of NREGA In Rajasthanamong the non-poor participantsabout 40 per cent worked less than 30 daysabout 37 per cent worked 30-60 days and about 23 per cent worked more than 60 days Thus less than a quarter of the non-poor came close to accomplishing the legislated limit of 100 days per household Among the poora slightly lower share (about 36 per cent) worked less than 30 daysa much higher share (about 44 per cent) worked 30-60 daysand a lower share (about 20 per cent) worked more than 60 days In striking contrast to Rajasthanlarge majorities of both non-poor and poor participants (81 per cent and 70 per centrespectively) worked in the lowest range (less than 30 days) and negligible fractions (13 per cent and 060 per cent) in the highest range (more than 60 days) So more than moderately high shares worked in the middle range (30-60 days)with the share of the poor (about 30 per cent) just under twice as high as that of the non-poor (over 17 per cent) So the markedly lower participation of the poor was partly compensated for by the longer participation of a segment In Andhra Pradeshdistributions of days worked were similar between the poor and non-poor Just under half in both cases (about 48 per cent of the poor and about 46 per cent of the non-poor) worked less than 30 dayswell over one-third (about 36 per cent and 38 per centrespectively) in the middle range of 30-60 daysand remaining moderate shares in the highest range (more than 60 days) Whether NREGA made a difference to the poor can be assessed in terms of poverty outcomes In the three districts of Rajasthan in the samplethe head-count poverty index registered a reduction of 5-7 percentage points; in Maharashtraa reduction of 2 percentage pointsand in Andhra Pradesh of about 9 percentage points In
