An ordinary government employee Latha Nair is a saviour for many children suffering from an incurable disease ‘Osteogenesis Imperfecta’ or better known as ‘Brittle Bone’ disease. ‘Amrithavarshini’ , an organization set up by Latha Nair and few souls like her has been helping such children to battle against the odds. Amrithavarshini aims to reach out to all people suffering from this disease and create a network to help them interact with each other to share their ideas and experiences.
Latha started helping a boy named ‘Binu Devasya’ who was suffering from Brittle Bone disease, but she was unaware of what she’s into. Later on ‘Dhanya’, who has been confined to a wheel chair, due to this degenerative disease came into the scene. Dhanya and Latha together raised money to help such children. The building blocks of Amritavarshini was laid down with the grit and determination of Dhanya and Latha,  which helped the boat sail smooth even when things went rough.
Latha Nair dreams of starting an ‘Osteogenisis society of India’ which is common in other countries. And she’s determined that if she gets some aid she’ll be able to start such a society for the country.
Equipped with gifts and lots of love Amrithavarshini volunteers visit homes across the state to meet such children. To bring a smile on their faces the volunteers take the children for a jolly ride in a double decker bus through the busy streets of Thiruvananthapuram.
