Like all little girls, Poorvika too liked to dress up in her best frocks. When she looked into the mirror though, her face fell and the bright smile vanished. Poorvika’s drooping eye was the bane of her life. It was something everyone commented on and led her to feel ostracised in school.
She carried on at school as her mother had told her it was not curable.

That was until her mother took her to the Hand in Hand India Medical Camp. Poorvika says that this was the happiest day of her life, when the doctor told her that her droopy eye can be cured! Along with medications, the doctor taught her eye-exercises and also gave her special glasses. Today, Poorvika can read with both eyes and is not embarrassed to look into the mirror. She is on her way to becoming a normal little girl!
