Bhopal, April 10 (ANI): A specially-abled girl here turned an inspiration for all around, as she has not just educated herself upto matriculation but also lately taken to teaching the needy children in her neighbourhood despite her physical condition.
Since childhood Ranjana Malviya has been suffering from Cerebral Palsy, described as a group of disorders that impair muscle co-ordination and motor movements.
Though she cannot walk or use her hands and is carried around by her parents, she never lost hope and remained resolute to learning and educating herself.
She has been crippled since birth and educated herself by writing by mouth. Moreover, to expose herself to different forms of creativity she has also taken deep interest in painting and writing poems.
Today, having withdrawn herself from education because of extreme physical condition, today she teaches children up to standard five.
"Every child wishes to be educated. But I was a bit different, I couldn't write with my hands. You can say it was a God gift that I started mouth-writing. I have cleared my Class 10 exams. I also write poems and do painting. However, due to extreme physical weakness I could not study further. I had to withdraw from my studies," said Ranjana.
She says that by teaching children she learns many new things in the process from them.
Ranjana has been recognised by the state government and various organizations for her determination and courage in life and for becoming a source of inspiration for all.
"I have been honoured by the Bhopal Utsav Samiti (Bhopal Festival Committee). I am a member of an organization called 'Sarokar' (concern) which works towards female infanticide. They do street plays and extent full support to me. Through this organization I spread this message to girls that even in this state if I was able to achieve so much then you have everything. So you can do so many things in life," said Ranjana. By Ram Chand Sahu (ANI)
