Impact

Archana and Chetana are identical twins. They were brought to SOS Children's Village Bengaluru as toddlers. They speak Tamil and do not understand Kannada. This created problem in communicating with them. The change was very hard for them and they took a long time to adjust. They would mostly be found crying and barely spoke in the first eight months."We were always crying and hated to go out of the house. Most of the days, we both would just cry and sit on the porch waiting for our grandmother to take us back home, `` says Archana emotionally.A kindergarten teacher introduced them to dance in an effort to cheer them up and make them more comfortable with their surroundings and their new mother at school. It helped them accept the change in their lives and they slowly started communicating with the mother and other children. They enjoyed dancing and started waiting for their classes. "We found a new way to channelise our emotions, which we could barely recognise, let alone articulate and express. Dance helped us communicate with others, it was an outlet for our emotions. We are attending the dance classes regularly from then, `` says Chetana. "There is a very vivid memory of a day when we both came very late (around 12am) from our dance class. Because we had always stayed in a very protected and sheltered environment at school, we were scared to be alone outside that late. Lokesh uncle (Village Director) counselled us and explained that soon we would be setting foot in the outside world, where we ourselves have to find our way and handle things. He also helped us make the right career decisions. Both of us have always been academically bright and we decided to do Engineering and got qualified as Information Science Engineers", says Archana. This sisters duo is also an acclaimed Bharatnatyam performers. An introduction to dancing helped them transform their childhood into a happy and fulfilling one. Trained under legendary gurus Devaki Narasimhan, B. Bhanumati and Sheela Chandrashekar, the sisters have been dancing for the past two decades and are acknowledged as top most duet performers in the country. Archana and Chetana have also been honoured as Cultural Ambassadors of India by the prestigious Indian Council for Cultural Relations. Today, they run their own dance academy in Bengaluru and also teach dance to over 40 students at SOS Children's Village Bengaluru.Every child is born with a special gift. A little support can help underprivileged children like Archana and Chetana recognise their gifts. Donate with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED.
