Enough said, But none heard. (World Deaf Awareness Week – Day 1)

Dumb-and-Deaf-Children-Singing-Indian-National-Anthem

Remember this girl?
We see her every time when we go to watch a movie and the national anthem is played which is sang by the dumb and deaf children. Some laugh on their disability, while some pity for few moments and then they are forgotten… (Till we go watch another movie!)

To enlighten you all, let me tell you that, 24th September – 29th September 2014 is celebrated as the World Deaf Awareness Week. Now, most of us might be unaware of this week and to most of us it might not be a big deal. But to some special children, this week means a lot. This week gives them the belief that the world isn’t such a bad place after all. It gives them the hope that people would start becoming aware of their culture and treat them equally in society.
