Inspired

Sukalu Nisad is a teacher at a primary school in Sonsaytola village, Chhattisgarh. Being blind has not detracted from Sukalu’s teaching skills. The only difference between him and the other teachers is that the book he uses to read out to his students is in Braille.  His colleagues and students are full of praise for him. “He is very good with the children, he uses different methods to explain things to them”, says one teacher at the school.

When Bhan Sahu heard about him she said she felt very sad that he had had such a life. This feeling quickly changed to one of awe when she met him for the first time. “When I met him, I felt inspired. He lives his life so peacefully. It must be very difficult for him to do things, but look at him, today he supports his own family.”

That he has overcome many obstacles to become a teacher is a source of massive inspiration to his friends, family and others who meet him. Yes he does have some problems in day-to-day life. It becomes difficult for him to travel alone or take a bath. He wishes he could know what his parents and the big city look like. But he doesn’t feel like he is missing out on life because he has friends that look out for him and a community that backs him.
