Pinki returns from Oscars with a smile on her

New Delhi: No sound of the drum, no fancy bouquets, no grand reception, Pinki returned home with an Oscar replica in hand and was quite agitated after a long flight back from the US. The welcome was not as grand as they would have liked but the entire Oscar experience was overwhelming for the team. “I feel proud as an Indian. It was great and this will do much more for cleft lip girls,” says Pinki’s doctor, Dr Subhodh Kumar. Smile Pinki directed by Megan Mylan won the Oscar for the best Short documentary and the girl from Varanasi who earlier suffered from a cleft lip walked the red carpet in style. “She did very well on the red carpet,” adds Dr Subhodh. He also stressed that the Oscar will help Indian surgeons help many more Pinkis suffering from cleft lips.
