A Home of Our Own


When Sunehri and her friends decide to play house-house, it seems like a perfectly routine thing to do. After all, children all over the world are enamoured with this game, right?

As the story goes along, however, what tugs on our heartstrings is that the children playing this game are homeless – doing odd jobs for money and scrounging for scraps of food. And yet, they take pleasure in something as simple as a common game of make-believe.

Read this story of resilience and optimism to understand the indomitable spirit of childhood.

“Let’s play house-house!” decide Sunehri and her friends. So they put together some old plates and bowls, empty packets of chips, plastic bottles, a broken helmet . . . things they’ve collected while going about their work in the city on whose streets they live.

The game, loved by children everywhere, takes on a poignant note when played by those who have never known a home. The illustrations that are full of exuberance and detail bring out their spontaneous joy in a make-believe world, which lives side by side with the tough reality of their lives.
