This is my documentation of the lives of Brahmachari kids of Varanasi,India. These kids live and study in the International Chandramauli Charitable Trust of Varanasi. Most of these children are between the age of 10-15 years who have come here to study from various different places including Mathura, Agra and Vrindhavan. The children are not only taught Sanskrit here but also Vedic literature, English literature, Mathematics, English Grammar, Music and also how to use computers. From simple food to simple dress, these children are taught to lead a simple lifestyle devoid of the unnecessary luxuries of today’s world.
