Smile Pinki also wins an Oscar!

Pinki.jpgAnother story from India wins at Oscars – Smile Pinki! For the best short documentary.

It is the story of a Uttar Pradesh village girl born with cleft lip, is the winner! Megan Mylan, the director, is very gracious in her acceptance speech. Pinki was there with her parents. What a trip! From rural UP to the red carpet in LA; the world truly is shrinking.

Pinki lived with the deformity for so many years until her cleft lip was taken care of thanks to the Smile Train charity. The Smile Train charity teaches doctors in their own countries to operate on cleft lips, a deformity afflicting up to four million children across the world.

Kudos to Megan Mylan, the director.
