Hari (12 years) has already been living with us for six years together with his younger brother. His father was drunk regularly and this often resulted in homely abuse. Their mother didn’t see any other way out than to commit suicide. The father couldn’t take care of his children and therefore the brothers live in Isai Ma(i)yam. Hari has become a very independent boy who can take good care of himself. He is a very smart boy with many talents. He plays two music instruments, mridangan (an Indian percussion instrument) and drumpad. He is also good at dancing, and sometimes he, Mani and Akash like to dance at performances.
