Sharad and Sakshi, the children with special needs have started schooling in a special school. Both of them are 4 years old now. Though Saakshi cannot hold her body up still, she shows much excitement about the whole process of getting ready in the morning and travelling to the school with Francis Bhayya and the teacher. School is a new experience for both of them and they look forward to it every day.
Both Sakshi and Sharad were abandoned at birth in different hospitals. Both were prematurely born and had to be in the incubator for a long time. Both are under treatment for convulsions. Sharad is able to walk but not talk. Sakshi is learning to sit and balance her neck at the age of four. She too does not speak.
