Being an explorer along with an artist, Arindam Dey has always loved travelling and capturing people’s emotion. His ambition to find something which captivates his heart led him to a child needing his help urgently.

Suffering from hydrocephalus, Roona’s brain was flooded with fluid. This fatal condition led to mentally disabling the child as well as made her growth stagnant,
Dey was heartily touched by the story of this poor family and decided to take pictures of the family. His pictures helped in raising $62,000 in donation for her medical treatment. And then they got the help.
With the help of money collected through online donation, Roona’s parent took her to New Delhi so as to sort out what medical assistance their daughter needed and what was actually happening to her.
