Anal has been offended for his stammering problem since childhood. This crippling affliction and Anal both have grown together affecting his confidence a little bit.
His parents are quite strong willed. They very well know that creativity is the only way out. And they want Anal to know that the world is a beautiful place to live in. There are people less privileged than he is.
“M…M…May I come in?”
Anal’s first day in music class; he has been greeted warmly by the Guru and the other students. Sharvari is late today so, couldn’t be introduced properly. She just smiled at him during the class.
It has been almost a year now. Sharvari and Anal are at their favorite Café. Sharvari, in sign language is ordering an ice-cream for her. Anal has started understanding her voiceless words since long. So, is going to propose her today unafraid of his stutter!
The song on the music system has cued his faltering proposal…
It’s true that Nature hasn’t made anybody perfect… But it has made counterparts for everyone, is equally bona fide… What do you think?
