Blind, deaf, mute, immobile – and living life to the fullest!

You think the blind can’t read? Here’s a blind person who wrote 4 books so our children can learn to read.

You think the deaf can’t hear? Here’s a deaf person who’s written a screenplay and is making a professional movie based on it.

You think the mute can’t speak? Here’s a mute person who’s communicating his ideas with professional actors and a director who will speak on behalf of him.

You think the quadriplegic can’t move? Here’s someone who’s confined to his chair 24/7, but has the ability to inspire and compel us to get up out of our chairs.

    How Inspiring !!!
    Thanks for sharing the article/video. You summarized the article very well !

    Isnt it ironic that it is often those who are handicapped in one or multiple ways, end up achieving much more than an average Joe, and become an inspiration to others. The words ‘dont take life for granted’ never held more significance.

    Thanks for reminding me to be thankful for what I have and aim for what all I can achieve !
