There was a programme on Sikh Channel last night, I didn't get to record it, so can't put on the bit I want to. I don't agree with a comment made by one of the guests who basically belittled disabled people in my view. I can't remember the exact words, but basically it was along the lines of if there are 4 or 5 children in a family and the father gives all but one something, then the child that's not given it should accept it that they are not meant to receive it. This to me is very very narrow mindedness and trying to make out because of peoples karam and accepting that they should not have something due to their karm is not a good comparison.
Dear friends, Firstly, I do feel blessed that we have been gifted with a son with autism. But it is difficult. He is a happy boy and very loving - but cannot speak, has independence issues, cognitive disabilities and social challenges. I'll be honest - we do worry about his future and his complex care does add stress to our lives. Our lives are not following the "normal" path.. whatever "normal" is. But I stay steadfast and am a very positive person at the core. I'm starting to rediscover Sikhi and the power of Naam. It does help me stay centred and on course. But I do question, why us? Why him? How can his soul find Waheguru? What was in his or our karma that led to this? What can Waheguru do to protect and bless him? This not to offend anyone.. but just some questions I've always had. Forever seeking. OneZ
Hi everyone, I'm writing about disability in India/America for a class of mine. Does anyone have first-hand experience on manners relating to them, a loved one, or anyone, involved with a disability that is neglected? Do any of you feel people with disabilities in India (or outside India) are neglected and not taken seriously? Thank you!
