When language is not a barrier for success!

This is Uthayaruby Balakirusnan, aged 28, a mother of 1-year- old child in Iruttumadu village. Her's is one of the families that suffer from extreme poverty in that area. She has been dumb from birth, and as such she was considered an outcaste by her fellow villagers and was excluded from any and all activities carried out by the village community. She used to be hesitant to talk with neighbours and relatives. In a word, it was as if she was isolated in her house. She recently also went through the trauma of losing her mother in an accident.
