When she was born and suffered disability from an abscess on her left hip which paralysed the baby. Her father wanted to get rid of her . He had a pre plan to take Sumita and her mother on a boat ride inHaharaGP’s Kolong River, a tributary of the Brahmaputra. In the middle of the river the father ordered the mother to throw the baby in the water. The mother cried and refused to listen to him. This soured the relationship of her parents and ultimately she died out of  Depression when Sumita was 05 years. Her father remarried and fortunately the step mother was kind to Sumita and brought her up well with education and skills in Tailoring. When Sumita joined Swabalambi she was trained in Crochet and Bamboo Work design. As a DPO leader she managed to get the Non disabledyoung girls to avail various skill development program at different institutes and facilitated placement of non disabled persons.
