These Divyangas struggled a lot, hats off to them for their patience , yet they are lucky and has the blessings of God, most of their families stood up by them at crucial times and things turned out for good!
I think these real life stories should be included in the college syllabus, the youth need to know what pain is and what life is for these people. And anyone can face the similar fate at any stage of their life!
These are just few examples, I'm sure there are many more stories out there which are untold.
And I guess only a tiny percentage of them have achieved success, majority of differently abled people are living in solidarity and waiting to just die!!
I wonder what we as a society and the Government are doing for them! I have seen Narendra Modi ji often talk about them, but in reality have we formed policies to help them out and give equal opportunities everywhere!
I have a younger brother who has Cerebral Palsy, and it's been 21 years. We have no hope!
May God bless these people first!
Disha ji, thank you for your hard work. I wish to read more such real stories..
Firstly I thought it would be something spiritual as the tittle suggest. But its more then that, while reading each story like of hearty a cute ten year differently-abled boy. He has 3 patents, while I read that I was like no is it for real and I checked it online, and find out it real.
My mind was upside down for a while wondering what just happened. Different stories taught me different things. Imagine just by reading 15 stories you can motivate yourself so strongly that would want to be like them.
Atleast I want to try like hearty has done. And not only hearty there are other people who are extremely optimistic about themselves and others and they believe in themselves.
Our problem is we don't trust us only and think others can do it. Like Vinod with prosthetic leg could bike ride till Ladakh.
I was flabbergasted while reading each story, why aren't we trying to push ourselves. But one thing we should keep in mind that we should not try to bring anyone down.
This all 15 stories taught me in believing in myself and Others. No matter what our family is with us then we can conquer all our fears.
I would highly recommend to read this book and give to your friends or family members who are depressed and enlighten them with these 15 heroes and rebellious mind.
THE BOOK IS FOR YOU.🤗
Going through these stories makes you feel how gifted you are yourself, but have you utilized that gift so beautifully as some of these specially gifted people have.. ??
Each character has his/her unique story,which is inspiring in its own way!
Must read for people who feel they have very few resources.. that they are among those whom God have been partial with while giving all what others have ! Superb work Disha!
