Bihari Girl to represent India at Unicef


A Bihari girl hailing from Gaya's low income group muslim family has been selected from India to represent Indian children at the Unicef's report release function in London.
Guriya Khatoon will be the only participant from India in UNICEF's release of 'State of the World's Children 2006' report on social exclusion. Khatoon will also address the function to express her experiences about social exclusion.

Khatoon, a student of class VII of Mahila Shiksha Kendra in Gaya, hails from a poor Muslim family and lives with her mother, who works as a labourer in villages near Gaya town to earn her livelihood. Her father became disabled in an accident about five years ago and moved to Mumbai with his relative to earn a livelihood.

Two years ago, a Bihar Dalit girl, Lalita, who hails from the poor rat-eater community known as 'Musahar', shot to fame after being featured on the cover of UNICEF's 'State of the World's Children 2004' report. She was the first girl from Bihar -- and India -- to receive the rare honour.
