Childrens Groups and the Battle of Ballot Box

Childrens Groups and the Battle of Ballot Box

Leher’s work on child protection with communities in Madhubani, also involves facilitating the organization of adolescent children’s groups of girls and boys. The groups recently concluded elections for the post of President and Secretary for each group. Our team was taken aback with how the word ‘chunaav’ changed the dynamics and energy of the groups. Maybe it is inherent to the terrain—Bihar. Elections in these informal groups of children, made them political, and they associated politics and elections with power and ‘varchasav’. #storiesfromthefield
