Alagraja has been at Bethany Home since June 2010. His father died of tuberculosis just before Alagraja’s arrival at Bethany Home. His mother is an agricultural labourer and has just enough to support Alagraja’s younger sister though not enough to send her son to school. She visits her son very regularly.

Alagraja is the youngest in the Home, though certainly not the shyest. He is constantly singing, dancing, laughing uncontrollably and running wildly around the Home. He is a joy to the whole Home.
