The helpless child monk

It was in a monastery in Ladakh where this child monk was left by his family for good. While talking to him, I felt his sadness and willingness to go back to his home and stay with his family but he had no way. While coming down the stairs, he appeared to be hand-less the same way he seemed helpless to me to get out of the place.
