He looked straight into my eyes and smiled. Offered his hands and asked me sit down and listen to the story his teacher was telling. He is one of the students I met when I happen to visit Shishu Sarothi, a centre for rehabilitation and training for multiple disability. & what an experience it was!!
All those teachers trying their best to make these students feel they “belong”. They are very much a part of the so called mainstream society. The little artworks done by the students and those handmade items , so beautiful and so perfect. How can we even think that these are the creations of somebody who is not “perfect ” . Let these children feel that they are also “normal ” that they belong , belong very much to the society we live in. They are capable of doing whatever anyone of us is, albeit they do it their way. Let them do that.
