I first met Nagapoojitha in February 2013. She had very bad hearing and was able only to sit at the front of class and just try her best. Her picture featured in my India’s Forgotten Children Exhibition in London the following year. Last week I met her again and she is doing very well at the Patashala School. Seen here, she proudly holds a school book that three years ago, she could never have written in or read.
