"I visited eight different slums of the 'City of Joy' to identify these hearing-impaired children who are fighting against all odds. Most of them are living in miserable environmental conditions either due to socio-economic reasons or to severe prejudice and negligence. Some of them are orphans, while some are so poor that their family can't earn enough for a loaf of bread, hence medical treatment remains a remote luxury. It was difficult to get the access to the privacy of their very own world in terms of both physical reach and psychological intimacy. There were lots of challenges - social, political, religious, and of course, emotional. But ice breaks over time, and after that it was an unfolding, enigmatic world of sound and silence."
