Rajasthan: Manan Chaturvedi to head child rights panel

Jaipur: The 42-year-old Manan Chaturvedi, who is famed to have 98 adopted children, was yesterday appointed chairperson of Rajasthan State Commission for Protection of Child Rights.

According to the reports, Chaturvedi first adopted a child 17 years ago. So much has been her love for children that she left her promising career as a fashion designer to become a child right activist.

The children Chaturvedi has adopted are aged one to nineteen, living with her three biological children - two daughters and one son - in a hostel-cum-home called 'Surman Sansthan'. Here, she takes care of their education, health, and celebrates every festival irrespective of the faith and caste the children belong to.

Excited over the appointment, she said, "This has strengthened me to work with more energy for the cause. I assure the people of Rajasthan that I will make honest efforts to bring a sea change in the lives of children. This constitutional post has given wings to make my dream turn into reality."

Chaturvedi, a graduate from Maharani College, organises marathon-painting sessions in order to raise fund for her home Surman.  The turning point in Chaturvedi's life was when she saw a barely clothed eight-year-old girl picking garbage at Sindhi Camp. That very moment I realized - what is the use of designing garments for a few when hundreds others don't have clothes to wear. Since that day, I changed my course of life and dedicated myself towards the cause of orphans, said Chaturvedi.

Now, her other major project is building a home for 2,500 homeless children at Sikar Road.
