Karthika is now a lawyer in Delhi. Her success is a result of her upbringing at Shanti Bhavan, along with perseverance, dedication, and access to opportunities most children of her background never have. She has moved her family out of the quarry and to a better home, and continues to work towards improving their lives, as well as the lives of others.
The story of Shanti Bhavan and its children is hard to encapsulate, even in a work as ambitious as Daughters of Destiny. Condensing 20 years into four hours is tricky! In our experience, viewers often have questions after, and that’s what this Viewer’s Guide is for. We’ve listened to the questions that have been asked, and tried to anticipate those that haven’t, and provided you with the best answers possible. If you find after reading what’s here that you want even more information, check out Glamour’s 2017 interview with Ajit George, Director of Operations; it’s one of the best pieces about the work and history of Shanti Bhavan.
Also, feel free to share any of this information with friends and family!
Again, thank you for your interest in Shanti Bhavan and its children! We’re incredibly proud to share Daughters of Destiny with you, and we hope you enjoy it!
