I was born premature. No one thought I will be able to make with the thought that I will die soon, no one cared to come and bless me like they do to all other new born family members.
But my parents didn’t want to give up! Creator left the space against my parent’s extreme level of care, will and love. I could survive!! But nature had its portion, I was left with poor intelligence and disoriented physical attributes. People were cynical; they laughed at me, use slothful words against my name. Hardly had anyone who could understand my cloven words or incomplete or rambling conversation.
I was alive!! There was nothing more my mother prayed for!! She fights against all barriers inside family; stand against all odds in society, my warrior mother could establish me in the society.
There are thousands mother like her, who gave up their lives, struggle and fight each and every day to create a comfortable space for their child to survive in this harsh world. May be the child is crippled or disabled, but they believe in them, they believe one day this child can win the world and become a person resembling renown to scientist, painter, player or singer.
I have experienced that the children with neurological disabilities are often considered as ‘strange being’ and become subject to bullying and harassment. This negative environment influences parents; they are not comfortable having their children with disability seen in public places, also parents of typical children have fear that their children may get affected if they study with students with these disabilities. The child with disability is considered a curse to the family and punishment from God; parents, are, metaphorically “sinners”.
