Passage No. – 1

Disability refers to any kind of physical or mental incapacity that limits a person‟s ability to work. Yet it is seldom that we have thanked God for the gift of Good health and well being. The smallest actions like seeing the sunrise, brushing our teeth, popping peanuts into your mouth come so naturally and effortlessly, and Yet we are never satisfied, always discontented. It is not so for the disabled. For them it requires immense concentration, effort, will power, energy and a lot of time. Despite this, it could be a long way of perfection.

It takes great courage and determination to cope with disability. We can make life easier for them by becoming more sensitive to their handicap, their needs and their problems.

Feeling of pity or under sympathy will only shake their confidence. Give them encouragement, facilities and resources, and then watch them as they learn, earn, play, work and even start their families.

Very often we find that a person lacking in one faculty is gifted in some other way. That‟s nature‟s way of maintaining balance.

Passage No. – 3
Just as it is vital for parents to live their own lives as fully is possible and to deepen their understanding of themselves to the utmost, so it is important for teachers and educators to do the same. When children go to school their teachers become, during school hours, substitutes for their parents.

This mutual relationship is of more importance than any teaching method, and a child‟s ability to learn is continually hampered if the relationship is unsatisfactory. Again, if teacher really want to be educators, to help children to develop into satisfactory men and women, and not simply to stuff them knowledge, they will only be really successful if they themselves have sound personalities.
