Leela Deshpande has seen quite a bit of life. Since she was a small child, all her birthdays were spent distributing food and sweets to childrens at various orphanages. Leela's regular visit to the slums introduced her to a painful stark life - Watching slum children pecking at leftover food from dustbin infested with stray dogs, one of the most disturbing sights left a lasting mark in Leela's memory.
