Our beautiful green planet is full of lots of people from different backgrounds along with capabilities. Those who are healthy , able and independent do not need any knids of the special care and help from others. However, people like children,sick people, senior citizens and differently able people need various types of help and assistance for thier daily activities and livelihood. Those people who arre physically un fit and metally disturb need special care and attention. It is the responsibility of every memeber of the society to assist them who are helpless, suffering , needy and sorrow-striken.
We should not take inactive citizens as the burden of our society. There are many people in our society who are have helpless and need special type of care. so me of physically dissabilities are speech impaired, hearing impaired or mentally retarted. some can be disabled due to their ignornace and illiteracy.
Some people are disable by birth and some have disabilities due to some accident and negligence. Whatever be the reason for their disabilities, they are the part of our society. Some of them can be our own brother and sister. Some can be our parents and senior citizens. They all formed our family and society and are the integral part of our living. So, It's our responsibility to take care and boost them in their living. Physically inactive or dependent people have their hopes and dreams, we should respect them and put forward our concern. Helping them to grow along with their dreams always boost their confidence and make them more stronger. We should take every opportunities of them to flourish.With Proper respect and encouragement from the society, they can achieve greater success. We should treat them well.
There is inspirational tale about a Nepali soldier - Kapil, who was finally coming home after having fought in Lebanon. He was sent for united mission as peace keeping force to maintain peace and security for the people living there. It was tough duty of a army to fight with local armed force and assure the safety for rest. Nepali have their great history of victory and valour in each and every armed activities.
He called his parents just before three days for returning form Lebanon. "Mom and Dad, I'm coming home this week only but I've favour to ask. I've a friend I'd like to bring home with me."
"Sure, We would love to have see him, som" they replied.
" When you are coming home, your mom is planning some special to welcome you back home"
"Oh, really. I am so glad that my mom is doing so much for me. Papa, there is something i have to tell about my friends", the son continued, "I am bringing him to stay with us for rest of his life. He has been badly hit in the ambush. He is handicaped now. I do not think this would create any difficulties to bring him in our home and provide him decent living".
"Son", said the father " You are so generous for others. I like and respect your feeling about him. But, parctically it would not be that easy and suitable to take him for whole life. We have our family and life styles. We can take him to some shelter home and help him to live in similar circle. But, we cannot accept him as our family member."
"father, He is alone and he has no where to go. I am his only frined and relative. I ahve given my words to him also. You should understand the situation and let me to bring him in our family. I would personally take care of him. I won't let him mto be the burden of any other member in our family", son's replied in soft tone.
"No, we could not accept some one other in our family. And after knowing he is handicapped, i would not give any permission to bring in my family. It will be burden for all of us", father spoke loudly in phone.
At that time, the son hung up the phone. Parents could not heard anything from him. A few days later, they received a call from Lebanon police and got the bad news. Kapil has fallen from a building and police claimed it was suicide.
The grief-striken parents flew to Lebanon with the help of Nepali Embassy and were taken to city hospital to identify the body of their son. They recognized him,but to their horror, they alsso discovered something they didn't know, their son had only one leg and one arm.
The parents in the story are like many of us. Many often we entertain only with those people who are good-looking, fun-loving, healthy and ignore who are unfit and metally reterded. We also feel discomfort and inconvenience to live with them. But, if someone is so near and dear to us, we are ready to accept any conditions of them. Our parents will always praise and support their own children but they find very difficult to accept any other disability. like in the story, Parents are unware of the condition of their own children and so ignorant that his own children has lost his leg and arm. So, someone who loves us with an unclonditional love welcomes us into the forever family, regardless of how messed up we are. Someone who truly loves us welcomes us whether we are lame, blind, deaf, dumb or whatever else. This capacity to love and give love to all kind of people is the most precious possession any one could hold.
Our religions and culture also show the high importance of service and help to those who are needy, poor, suffering and helpless. Those help and service that we can offer to such people are holier than anything. According to our religion, it is believed that if we do good with differently able people then goodness will definitely comes to us and our family. Therefore, we should give up personal selfishness and greed and involve ourselves in the holy work of serving people who are needy, helpless, suffering and differently able.
In our country, we can see many people around us who are disabled, helpless, sick, parentless and victims of earthquake. Many elderly people are isolated by their family members and living in humiliation. They should be properly taken care by their own family members or by those NGO's and INGO's working in this field. These people have special talent in them. They can be very useful for social development and tranquility. they should be cheered up and everyone should be with them. The sigh of good society is reflected by the caring, sharing and cheering of the helpless people in need.
Let's take one live example, The portion of the report published by Nepali Times on May-June, 2011 illustrate that how deaf people are given the opportunities to boost up their living.
"Work opportunity for deaf Nepali is scarce and limited. Since 1997, Shyam Kakshapati's Bakery Café has employed dozens of deaf people in Kathmandu. But Nepal shouldn't stop there.nb
"The deaf are succeeding through their studies in high school and college. But the only avenue they see in front of them is a waiter, a data entry person, or as a sign language instructor. So while these opportunities give them the means to eat and pay the bills, it's limited and has become a sort of de-motivation," says Giri."
Not only deaf people, we should help every people who are suffering physically, mentally and socially if we wish to make our country strees-free, violence-free and maintain peace everywhere.
