The Lives beneath the Counting

Sujata Gupta Winfield practiced employment-discrimination law for many years, advocating for employees, and is now an immigration lawyer who lives and runs a solo firm in Athens, Georgia. Having left Calcutta, India, she is attuned to her clients’ poverty, sorrow at leaving behind home and family, feelings of alienation, experiences of disadvantage in a new land, and striving to make their sacrifices work. “The Lives beneath the Counting” is her first published piece.
