Mothers are preparing their kids before leaving home to earn as 'Bohurupee' artists.

These children are compelled to leave their homes early morning to travel by trains and buses in search of livelihood. Their parents help them wear cheap make up and their tattered clothes peep out through the royal garb. One can find these gods and goddesses travelling in public transport asking sympathy (read money) from the commuters.
