Srikaran’s father abandoned him and his mother attempted suicide in 2013. Since then, he and his brother have been in their grandmother’s care. While she works hard to earn enough money to support Srikaran, it is still not enough for his school supplies and other daily necessities. Srikaran had a hip surgery in 2015, but overall he is in good health. Srikaran is a respectful boy, enjoys learning, and hopes to one day become a teacher.
