Let's Hear it From Pooja

Pooja Yerramilli, a graduate from Yale University, talks about the life challenges of a differently abled child. 
I went through a blog written by Pooja, where she shares an interesting story about the life of a person with disability. Mohammad Rafiuddin, spent his life, fighting with his disability so that people could actually appreciate his abilities and put their focus on that.

This blog shares how Rafiuddin grew up with his disability in a household, whose income was lower than the actual wage. People ignored him, disrespect him and did not let him prove himself just because he was DIFFERENT. Here again, let us focus that he is not disabled but he is differently abled, which makes him unique in his own way. Now Rafiuddin is though working, his life was much difficult than other normal people who got the same abilities but our not different. The ignorant society is the main obstacle in the development of a differently abled child. We are responsible, though not for the cause but for forcing them to degrade themselves and lead an unhappy life.

This is one thing I want to use social media for. PROVOKE THE SENSE OF RESPONSIBILITIES AMONG PEOPLE. So today's message is, step out and try to make a differently abled person SMILE.

Special Children are Born to Special People

I was going through different blogs and experiences of people with special needs and I read this article about a beautiful experience a family had a restaurant which truly shows that the people are generous and can act like angels in any form.

I read an article on It is based on how a normal couple paid for the food of a family having a 5 years old boy having autism. Though some might say that this act is not that big, but truly all these small acts actually shows that humanity exist in people for real.

One of the outcomes that I see of my project is people understanding how to pay respect and gratitude to all those who work hard raising a child with special need to make him/her independent. Humanity exists in all forms. If this world would be a place of love and every single person would start ignoring the differences then peace would be the only thing we could find in this world. Every single person in this world can contribute in my project by smiling towards a child with special need. These small acts is what I see as an outcome of my project and for me would be a great success, for sure.

Bullying- To Be Stopped

Working for the special needs children, I also have to make sure of all the few highlights that actually put their affects on the development of a special child's mentality.

With this regard, I read a blog which actually states all the affects people can put on someone's life by bullying. By running this project, I am also concerned in order to teach people to respect people with disabilities. They are different but they are still human beings. This is one of the major highlights of my campaign. I believe my community need to support and provide a better stage to people with disability, be respectful and not make them get ashamed of their reality. Make them your friends, help them not to make them dependent on you but making it easier for them to figure out a better, sorted out life.
