Anil is a 50 year old who lost his livelihood as a journalist because of his burn. He has trouble turning his head and lifting his arms so he can't ride a motorbike to get the latest stories. He's already had several surgeries by Interplast and his improvement is significant. He burned himself when he was cooking, and he lit a match and the gas exploded. Anil took great care to comb his long healthy hair and set it nicely for his photograph. He was very interested in John's (our team photographer) camera and told us he was one of the first journalist/photographers to shoot with a digital camera in India. Today he will have his arm and neck contractures released.
