A few extraordinary people have the understanding that in this world created by God there should be equal opportunity and privilege given to all the children of God. When they witness that the reality is not so, they try to do their best for the underprivileged. Babar Ali was one such concerned human being. Being the first generation learner, he realised that many other children in the village were not so privileged as he and decided to do something to improve their lot. That this realisation dawned upon him at such a young age as nine is remarkable. It is not an exaggeration to say that in such promptings of the mind, social activists like Babar Ali, echo the sentiments of the Buddha, who renounced the princely existence on witnessing the suffering of humanity.
