Sunitha and Malla are from Bagalkote and Belgaum respectively. They both are visually impaired and received good support in school when it came to studies and sports. They participated in running races and other games. Slowly, however, they lost interest as they concentrated more on their studies.

Later they joined the NGO Samarthanam Trust for the Disabled in Bangalore and met Mohammed and Shika there; both are wall-climbing coaches.
