It Takes Courage 2 Hope


Well this post is about a friend of mine, Jerin(name changed) whose brother Joshin(name changed) is suffering from autism and Joshin is 5 years old.
Jerin's family has taken his brother to all the big hospitals in the country for treatment but all in vain.Doctors say that they should have brought the child at an early stage coz its difficult to diagnose after an age of 4-5 years.

One day i asked him what is that makes you hope that your brother will be able to lead a normal life.Suddenly he turns red in face and fumes at me "are you saying he will not be able to lead a normal life?" then he gave me a look as if he wanted to wring my neck and suddenly left the place. It was then i realised may be he misunderstood me.

I met him after two days and apologized to him to which he just smiled.Then he went on to tell me a story about a young man who was deeply in love with a beautiful girl. Both studied in the same college but the problem was the girl loved someone else.After college the girl gets married. Boy leaves the city and decides never to marry anyone else.

"Now what has this to do with us?" i asked. With the same smile on his face he replies "that boy is my father and the beautiful girl is my mother now."
he continues "my father left the city with a hope that may be some day things turn out his way and it did. If he did'nt had any hope then i wouldnt be here."

"So you asked what is it that makes me hope, well, its my father".

You might be thinking what happened to her husband, well he died 1 year after the marriage due to blood cancer.And Jerin's parents got married after 10 years.

Really nice to read about such a wonderful and true fact and this is called true love. Everybody should have courage and faith to fight against all types of odd situations. Without hope we cannot survive and should be always optimistic to get peace in life.

That was indeed a really touching story... i always love and care for people having an autism... for me,they're the people one would love to talk with for they talk more sensible and intelligent words than those having a normal disposition... you'll be amazed with what they can share in one's life... thanks Jay for sharin' this...!!!:)

Thanks for all the support on my works and for wishin' me a safe journey!!!:)

A Blessed day!!:D
