Capital city of Chhatisgarh, Raipur is also the largest city in the state. With a growing number of malls, parks and temples, Raipur has also seen an increase in its population. Increasing population is accompanied by urban poverty in one way or the other. Despite its rich mineral resources and big industries, such as steel, aluminium and cement, poverty still remains a curse for millions, affecting adults and children alike. As a result, many children are left alone and many on the verge of being parentless.
