    Sona Devi has been to school. But she is an exception, one of the few 'matriculates' in her three million strong Musahar community. Sona Devi , who lives in a village in the Nawada district of Bihar, India, wanted to continue her education, but odds and barriers did not allow her to continue.

The ground water in some villages is contaminated, crippling the inhabitants' bones. Mushahars are socially-excluded Dalits, who live primarily in the Indian states of Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Odisha and Uttar Pradesh.
