A family of the Banjara nomadic community migrated to Maharashtra in search of job with a number of families from drought-hit Vijayapur in Karnataka. Their son Kiran Chowhan started his schooling in Maharashtra. When their son expressed his dream of becoming a police officer, the parents stayed on in Maharashtra so he could continue his studies, even though many families returned to Vijayapur. He has now returned to Vijayapur after becoming an IPS officer, to proud parents and a proud community. He will be leaving to the National Police Academy in Hyderabad. The community leaders gathered together to felicitate Kiran, who made the name of the Banjara community popular through his hard work.
