She is the little sister of Madhava, our general manager, but her smile is far from little. It’s big and warm enough to uplift anyone from a hard day at Uni. Her eyes along with her gracious smile will melt your heart and if you get a chance to witness her energetic dancing it will put a smile of your face as big as her charming smile.
