“Child marriage is illegal,” said Kusma, addressing a crowd of children, adolescents and adults. “Even the chef who cooks at a marriage that weds a child will be prosecuted.” Kusma has gained the confidence to speak at public forums and interact with public representatives, including government officials and high-level community leaders. She repeats the topic in the evening when she leads a group of child reporters to talk to the village community. Kusma speaks directly to the fathers present in the meeting. Her knack of weaving a disparate set of ideas coupled with her flair arrests their attention. The words flow and so do her thoughts, and in unison. But more importantly, a genuine commitment is felt/heard/sensed her tone. A little anger too.

On India’s National Day of the Girl Child, 12th-grader Kiran Bauri and 500,000 other girls and women poured onto the streets in Purulia District, West Bengal, India and joined hands to form a 348 km long human chain. The chain started at the centre of town and extended beyond as more and more young women joined. They were sending out a strong message that girls “belong in school” not in a marriage. A student, Kiran grew up seeing many young girls getting married at an early age and dropping out of school. Now she’s on a mission to change this.
