Street Accident in Bodhgaya

6 August 2013

It is with great sorrow that we pass on some sad news from Bodhgaya. Two students from the Jeanamitabh orphanage recently passed away in a tragic street accident.

They were coming home from tuition when their bicycle was hit and run over by a bus driver suspected of drinking and driving.

The two students, Shambhu and Vikash, had just recently passed their matriculation exams with very good marks. They were both hard workers who came in early during the mornings to help out around the class. Both students were very affectionate and enjoyed joking with their peers.

The entire Jeanamitabh family has been affected by this great sorrow and is mourning the loss of both students.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the students as well as the extended family at Jeanamitabh.

The photos attached were taken a few days before the accident when both students were being awarded for passing their matriculation exams.
