Disability is a matter of perception. If you can do just one thing well, you’re needed by someone – Martina Navratilova
Living with a disability can be hard. But one needs to realize that they are still in control of their lives. All that’s required is independence, sense of empowerment, and positive outlook. The story below is about one such man and how he managed to tick all the requirements and lead a fulfilling life.
A tweet by Sanjib Ghosh recently went viral. It was about a teacher, teaching his students. You might wonder what’s so extraordinary about that. But when you look at the picture, you see who the teacher truly is. A differently-abled man with limp limbs teaching his students.
Meet Mr Sanjay Sen, he has been teaching kids, complex subjects like Math, Science, and English in a government school in Rajasthan under the Shiksha Sambal Project since 2009. The picture shows how Sanjay is straining to write as there are absence of proper facilities like crutches or wheelchairs. In spite of all the hardships this man had been zealously teaching since last 8 years.
After the tweet went viral, people from all over India lauded this teacher’s dedication.
