Living in a mud thatched house with her differently-abled son and husband suffering from a cancer, Mallika is fighting against all odds to make ends meet.
She has four children. Her second child was born with disabilities that restricted him to one place and without the ability to speak.
Without abandoning the child, despite hardships, she went on to make two of her sons Buddhist monks.
We met this mother with an iron heart during our journey to meet great mothers around the country.
