Have you read the FAQ's? :

Will you do my restoration/retouch/repair for me?

No. This is a site for learning, and we will gladly help you learn to do it yourself. We have a "Image Help" forum just for that purpose. Click on "Forums" on the navbar to get there. There is also a "Classifieds" forum if you're willing to pay one of our members to work on your photo.

Re: Restoration & recoloring help needed

sree,
Welcome to Retouch Pro !

I would start by examining the RGB channels. Note that the B channel is a bit more damaged overall, but does have some usable contrast.

You could then use apply image to build contrast in one of the other channels. If you don't have Photoshop, then simply build more of the R or G channels using a channel mixer type layer.

From there it is a fairly straight-forward restoration. You should be able to mend the problem areas using any clone or heal type tool - what ever you have available to you.
