Bholi’s teacher helped her overcome social barriers by encouraging and motivating her. How do you think you can contribute towards changing the social attitudes illustrated in this society?
There is no doubt that Bholi’s teacher helped her overcome social barriers by encouraging and motivating her. It was her teacher’s motivation that she had the courage to cancel her marriage when the groom insulted her father.
Such social evils exist at all levels in the society. They can only be eradicated by creating awareness among people and making them realize that it is the inner self of a person that should be valued and not just the appearance. Bholi’s family should have encouraged her to move on in life and overcome her lingual problem rather than treating her differently. The root cause of these social evils is illiteracy and ignorance.
We should work towards changing people’s perspective towards such things. A person’s disability should not be mocked at. Such a person should be treated equally. Parents should not take a disabled child for granted. If a child gets motivated at home, he/she has the confidence to face the world.
