Usha (9 years) is a lively lady, she can defend herself well. Sometimes this can make her a bit bossy, but it also makes her energetic and outgoing. Usha is not only lively, but also has a soft side and so she loves to cuddle. Her energetic character shows in her dancing, through which she can lose some of her energy. Usha has an elder sister, Sharmila (11 years), who also lives with us. Sharmila is a happy and easy girl who is loved by everyone. She does well at school and always does her homework. In character the sisters don’t look very much alike, but they care a lot about each other. Their father left with another woman and their mother can’t earn enough money by herself for the family. The sisters still go home sometimes in the weekend or during holidays.
