The Healthy Hearts
Daksh (1.3 yrs), Milan (3 months) & Meet (3 months)
Chaya Thapa, Mother; Chavi Thapa, Father

Residing in the cantonment area of Dehradun is the family whose ancestors were from Nepal. Chaya, a former teacher, currently a homemaker, lives with her husband Chavi, a bank employee, with her three children. They live in a 4-bedroom independent house with a rescued dog. Their relatives live nearby. Their house is filled with colourful lights, ancestral photos and children’s photo collages. They have an outside courtyard veranda where Daksh plays with his cycle, plants and dog. The parents share the responsibility of caregiving. Both of them follow a routine that helps them take care of their three children with ease; where Chavi helps out with cooking and feeding before leaving for the office and lets Chaya take a break as he takes Daksh out to play in the evening after coming back from the office etc.
