Children at a stationary shop in Mashaldanga Chitt a Bangladeshi enclave in the south Coochbihar district of West Bengal, India. The future of the children in the chitmahals remains uncertain because of the lack of schools in chitmahal, there are only a few pathshalas (village moderated schools without any board). As a result of this the parents of the chitmahals often send their children to better schools in the Indian mainland with the help of fake parental documents made in exchange of money in order to admit their children and to provide them a better future.
