Munna* loves his grandfather Allu Pedda. Allu Pedda has been affected by leprosy and because of that he struggles to walk and his eyesight is deteriorating. Munna* longs to see his grandfather included but Allu Pedda feels rejected. He is not invited to parties or meals in the community. It’s easier to stay at home.
Allu Pedda was diagnosed with leprosy 20 years ago. When he noticed the tell-tale patches on his skin he went to a Leprosy Mission Hospital and there he received the cure for leprosy. But the effects of leprosy remain. The rejection and feeling of not belonging make him feel so lonely.
