Harshada’s old grand mother is the only person at home to look after three small kids which was beyond her capacity. Their financial condition is very poor and the parents somehow manage the house expenses.
Harshada was very shy girl and was having inferiority complex. That was the reason she was not able to mix with other children. However three year back she joined in the pre-school centre, started by NISD, and there were number of changes took place in her overall personality. She started taking interest in her studies, different plays, songs etc. As her interest increased she was coming regularly in the pre-school. Her hand writing is very beautiful. She also took part in number of competitions and gain confidence.
