In the 1980s, a young school boy delivered newspapers early in the morning to several Bengaluru households. He earned Rs 120 a month.
The newspaper boy, Christopher Richard, lost his father when he was a child. His mother, a primary school teacher, made Rs 1,500 per month. The boy supplemented her income with earnings from his delivery job.
For the family, money was always a problem. And for Christopher, it was a teenage life full of adversities and hardships.
By the time he was in Class X, he was working two jobs besides going to school. He’d distribute newspapers in the morning, and work at an ice cream parlour after school.
