Review and Giveaway: Mother India

Did you know that in India there are over 30 million orphans? Mother India is a documentary that follows David Trotter and Shawn Scheinoh as they travel to India to see what life is like for orphans there.  However, their journey led to more than they expected.

David and Shawn met a "family" of oprhans that live along the railway.  These children face many challenges to survive.  They have been abandoned or orphaned for many different reasons.  Many of them have injuries due to living along the railway including missing limbs.  Some have been involved in drug abuse and prostitution.

While learning about the life of this "family" of orphans, David and Shawn get to know Polayya and Koteswari.  These two young siblings were forced into begging and even abused by their parents. They eventually became a part of this group of orphans.  David and Shawn felt led to get the children off the railway.

Their journey shows how they worked with Harvest India to hopefully get the children off the street and into a better life.

Narrated by Rebecca St. James, this eye opening documentary is both insightful and heart wrenching.
