One time, a teacher saw me talking to other deaf kids in sign language and hit my hands with a stick to get me to stop using my hands and use my voice instead.

They fail because we have failed them. What a marvellous post Mahima. All the praise you will get cannot take away whatever you feel and go through while collecting such experiences. I cannot thank you enough for this one especially. Too close to home. I couldn’t finish this in one go. We really don’t want Women in our country isn’t it?

Much gratitude your way for doing this every week. Please don’t stop.
