"That scar on her head, that speaks a thousand words. So much more than what Anu tells me about what is going with her. I mean, she can't really hide her pain. But she tries to and that brings tears to me. She is just a little girl and she has so much pain to deal with. She should be out in the fields now, enjoying herself but here she is fighting the worst battle of her life,"- Nagapriya, Anu's mother.
Anu aspires to be a teacher8-year-old Anu who loves studying says that she wants to be a teacher one day. She wants to teach those who can't afford education. She wants to make their lives better. She was in standard 3 but it's been two years since she went to school. Even when battling with one of the deadliest forms of cancer, her beauty and strength lie in the way she makes you believe as if she feels no pain at all. She wants to be left alone as she does not want her mother to get to know her deteriorating state.
