Back to the Beginning

Ravi’s days are spent hobnobbing with the top echelon of the business community. With sheer determination and indomitable will, success kissed his feet by the time he turned 40.

Despite his current status, he makes it a point to visit the modest place, off Banerghutta Road, every year. His life had blossomed here out of the mire he got stuck with.

He still remembers the day he was literally pulled out of the street and brought here by the gardener.
Initially he hated it, but slowly, the magic of the palace rubbed off on him.

It feels so home here, doesn't it? 
The memories come flooding with smile on his face as soon as he sets foot in his orphanage – the SOS village.

    Not just kids, quite a few adults love a totally 'happy-go-lucky' life and hate to be subjected to discipline and hard work, which are so necessary to improve one's life.
