From a young age, this young woman is doing the work which older people do not have the courage to do. Devi Shree, 16, hails from the Khammam district in Telangana. She was born into Hindu Family.

She gives her final farewell to such a mortal body in the district which is unclaimed. These days, due to corona, the process of deaths continues in the Khammam district of Telangana.

In such a situation, she also performs the last rites of the mortal body whose relatives leave them. Not only in this difficult time, Devishree, along with the help of two other women, also helps in the funeral procession of the mutilated body lying on the side of the railway track.

Devi is associated with the Annam Seva Foundation, an NGO. Under which she does this work. Such corpses that are victims of an accident and have no claimant, liberate them. Many times the police also inform them about this and their female colleagues.

Devi is a Class 12 student and runs a breakfast stall in Yelladu with her parents. But her stall has been closed since the lockdown and she is currently working as a cook at the foundation.

The Annam Seva Foundation was founded by Srinivasa Rao, a retired lineman of BSNL who grew up in an orphanage shelter.
