Our lives go on many times without our consent, we express many times it has just happened. If we look back, Life provides us with many experiences. In these experiences, regardless of them being good or bad, there can be many lessons, inspirations, solutions, and wisdom one can learn from. It only takes a short moment of reflecting upon them with an intention to learn and move ahead. I was privileged to be selected for short term Diploma, at Spastic Society of India, Bombay in 1986, as I wish to have a break from monotonous job, a wonderful place how teachers are committed to put the people in order and make them learn with the spastic disabilities, It was difficult for me to adopt with the circumstances to be with so many disabled children, however I have to learn something from everyone it was this idea that helped me to overcome many difficulties to survive in Bombay, a City of many goods and find every one
s first priority is to survive. Bombay is city of utter riches and of the very poor majority are connected with their jobs than even their families. Many times we think we are normal with all abilities do not find the usefulness of our abilities. I started learning from disabled children the life is complex phenomenon as god may not give many things, to all, the reason I do not know ?, I learnt the meaning of life from the very sweet children encaged with the many deprivations, in few days I tried to be friend with many. However they start waiting your presence and there are no inhibitions if you are human to them you have friend in them. It only takes a short moment of reflecting upon them with an intention to learn and move ahead. Similarly there are many parallels in life with certain basic things we do. The best way to rehabilitate our differently abled children continues to be Organizing our work, use clear and analytical thinking, being courteous and tolerant, and choosing our words carefully are some of the things we should do at work and in our professional environment. But we seldom choose to adapt to such behaviour at home and amongst our family and friends. If we choose to adapt such behaviours at home as well, we can avoid a lot of simple problems the clutter out personal lives. Choosing to listen more and inspire by our own behaviours are some of the key things we can apply in many different aspects of our lives. If we can apply these principles, and demeanour at work, we can do the same while playing sports, and in our personal lives, at home, amongst friends and work place etc. Best lesson I learnt is if you are little patient everyone is your friend, In spite of few weeks association as learner the great depressing moments are when we have to leave the Institute as training period is completed , many children are holding hands and even crying when they come to know all of us are leaving. However it was a great emotional moment which I cannot afford to forget. I realised that are we using our abilities as wished by God who has given a duty to do better things, Even few weeks I have spent it has brought lot of transformation in me and started helping spastic children at my work place. Many expressed best transformation in life for everyone is how you transform in life from being a student to a teacher, from child to a parent; we all should believe the difference between
school and life? In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given
a test that tea
ches you a lesson.” –
