Arun, now 19, is a transformed young man. He may still be an introvert but lives a productive life—he is an assistant to his carpenter father and earns Rs 100 a day. Recalls Neeta: "After days of total inertia, one day when I gave him a paper, and pencil, Arun drew out a flower. That was the turning point. We tapped the budding artist in him, he created other wonders with paint and brush—three years later when we decided to produce our own greetings cards, Arun’s drawings and paintings were a big draw."

Pawan Gaur is yet another success story from Drishti, a Lucknow-based NGO started in 1990. Orphaned while in the eighth standard, Drishti provided him assistance to complete his studies. He completed his graduation and is now employed with the State Bank of India.
