Harshita was left by her parents in a small basket at the gate of Aarti Home. When we brought her into the home, the first thing we took note of was her beautiful smile and joyous demeanor. She is now in her 2nd standard and very fond of painting and singing.
Varshita's parents died when she was born, and her neighbors took care of her for a week. She was later brought to Aarti Home after a stranger admitted to have found her in a dustbin. She came to the home on a rainy day, hence her name Varshita, since Varsha means "rain" in Telegu. She is now in 2nd standard and is a storyteller and artist.
Both Harshita and Varshita are being brought up in Aarti Home like twins since they both arrived at around the same time and have always treated each other like sisters.
