Why does Arun want to become a police officer?

Life and Dreams

Short Story #3


Arun’s mother was a child bride whose husband died when she was still young. After remarrying and giving birth to Arun, Arun’s father abandoned the family. In grief, his mother committed suicide. Vijay was taken by a relative, driven out of town, and abandoned on the street too far to find his way home. Arun was then forced to steal or beg for food, until eventually being picked up by the police who brought him to Sanctuary Home.


Arun has now been a part of one of APCF’s children’s homes for 6 years and dreams of being a police officer one day, like the man who found him on the street who brought him to Sanctuary.
