Many of our fellow beings carry labels of mental retardation, spastic, handicapped, defective etc. and life seems to have become a never ending hurdle from one obstacle to another, not only for those who carry the label but, even for those who don’t (like the families of the labeled). Our society’s demands and values have caused greater anxiety and tensions about tomorrow and what next?
The so – called mentally handicapped are actually simple souls, with pure hearts. Though bodies grow old and big, mentally they are still like children in openness and straight forwardness. Just because, these simple souls have not imbibed the techniques of cheating and manipulation that so called progressive/advanced/modern world has incorporated in their day to day life, these souls are branded “Handicapped!“.
May be instead of helping the defective to become normal, if we accepted certain truths of life and focused on identifying the loving, kind, simple soul carrying the tough label, then, life would have new meanings for all beings.
These, wonderful simple souls who carry labels may hold the secrets to oceans of love and purity and enable mankind to achieve its common vision of Universal brotherhood.
ADHAAR is a Creative Work space for the simple souls. The simple innocent child in every human. They embody our zeal for a straight – forward world. Let us hold their hands to lead us to a world of love and understanding. ADHAAR started functioning from 1st November 1990, inaugurated by Mother Anne (Our Lady of Missions France).
