Gifted – A Poem
‘Disabled’, the society screamed and their life was restricted,
‘Different! not less‘, was the chant to which their parent’s enlisted.
To achieve the impossible, is what their families committed,
It was every parent’s dream that their child lives unassisted.
Unique they were, and each of them was spirited,
Unhindered by the limitations, their bodies had inherited.
Reading about their triumphs, the myth of disability gets lifted,
‘A celebration called life‘ is the story of these truly GIFTED.
Gifted is a collection of 15 inspiring stories of people with disabilities. It’s written by VR Ferose and Sudha Menon. This blogger is proud to have been associated with the book in his own small way (check the acknowledgment in the book).
