Only if everything would be her way!

So, what is your religion? I asked, she smiled faintly and said, ‘I am a Human’ I chuckled at her reply and repeated my question, ‘I know my dear that you’re a human, but what religion do you belong to? Hindu, Muslim, Sikh?  She responded, ‘Umm, Humanity?’ I smiled at her and said, ‘You’re not getting my question’ She dropped her eyes and said, ‘just like others even you are not getting me.’ I narrowed my eyes at her and then gave her a big smile.

I certainly did understand what she was implying; I was just digging in more to see how fascinating and how much more heart warming her replies can get, but she did leave me pensive for quite a while, it was not her implications though which did this task rather it was she, the innocent 32year old woman, who the world considers to be ‘mentally disabled.’

I met her in a Ngo named Advitya, It is a creative learning school for the grown mentally disabled kids. See the oxymoron there? Grown and kids in the same statement? Well, that is how it literally was. She was a grown up, I found her pretty smart too, but the question here arises that why was she considered as mentally disabled, it was not as if she couldn’t work her way out, she was perfectly able to do her own chores, then why? The real reason here was that she was way too naive to understand the evils of this world; her innocence was way too good for this cruel environment. She was different; she was unable to understand the complex structure that we humans have created. She firmly believed in simple living. Humanity was her way, but that wasn’t accepted by the majority in our so called ‘normal’ society. So, she was separated and tagged as a disabled.

    Now this is very thought provoking. She has that clarity of thought. Good moral values and I don’t think she deserves to be called disabled. I liker what she wrote. Ur heart should be pure . don’t allow negative feelings.. Wow. Simple but yes very important thing to remember.

      Yes! She is the epitome of innocence, her writing is so pure and makes us feel something, something so deep! Something which makes us question that are we living our life the right way?

    Hello Preeti,
    I am touched by this post! I don’t think the fully-abled people like us deserve to be called fit for the society. We must be put up in rehab centres to be helped with the way we have evolved our brains to react selfish, conspiratorial, clever etc. I’ve loved the innocence of this woman’s thoughts. If we had such people around, this world could have been a much better place.
    I suggest , keep yourself associated with this NGO. Goodness is infectious 🙂

      I totally agree with you! Goodness is certainly infectious, You know, Advitya is a place where for once, you will feel good about people around you. Their innocence, their ability to be titillated by little things in life and so much more!
      Anyways Thankyou so much for spending your time and reading this post, means alot! 🙂
