From Children to Adults - 1984 Anti-Sikh Riots Victims From Children to Adults-1984 Anti-Sikh Riots Victims - a set on Flickr 68 photographs by professional photographer Sanjay Austa, along with brief stories of children whose parent/s were killed in the 1985 antiSikh Pogrom. "They were in their mothers stomach, just delivered, toddlers or school going children in 1984 when their fathers, uncles or siblings were butchered in the anti-sikh riots in Delhi which left almost 3000 sikhs dead. These children were suddenly wrenched out from their cosy family life and hurled into the world of neglect, apathy and abuse. They grew up in the shadow of the riots, struggling between going to school and making a living. Their fathers were killed and their mothers either remarried or were so busy working to eek out a living that the kids were virtually forgotten. 25 years on they have grown up into young men. Some wayward due to the neglect , others unemployed due to lack education, and yet few others transformed their lives by sheer grit and determination. These are their stories."
