H. Prithviraj Babu joined Fame India in June 2009. When I came with him for the interview, I could see how happy the children were as they entered the premises wishing the teachers. Prithvi was quickly able to adjust himself to the new environment at Fame India. He learnt the skills of making a bill for a list of items and is able to find the price and the total value of items.
The survival words taught to him are of much use in his daily life. He has also started showing some interest in current affairs. For example, he was able to recognize the recent air crash at Mangalore and also the demise of matinee idol Vishnuvardhan. Recently he has moved to work with the Swavalambana unit and enjoys his activities there. He likes the members of the staff and his colleagues. His interaction with his friends and teachers about the happenings at home is indicative of his comfort level at FAME India. I believe he needs further training in construction of sentences and conversation. As a long term goal it will be useful for him to get trained in skills that allow him to be gainfully employed and contribute as a member of our society. This will also help boost his confidence level. I hope that Swavalambana can get him close to becoming self reliant. -H S Jayaraman
