...I have only partial use of my arms and hands. I cannot hold a cup; I cannot even comb my own hair. I have quadriplegia. I have two choices. I have a loving family. I am sure my mother, my sister and other family members will take care of me. I need only to stay in bed. They will feed me, bathe me, and do all they can to make my life comfortable. But I want you to know that my paralysis does not define me. I want you to recognise that I am more than my body. My brain, ordinary as it is, still functions. I also have other abilities. I am a Master of Computer Applications and can do several things. I can use my skills to earn a living. Not only that, I can even contribute to society. My family’s loving physical support can only keep my body alive. To enliven my mind and soul, I need to be considered a human being. I began by saying I am a quadriplegic. But I would want you to think of me as a human being with quadriplegia. I do not want to be a burden. I want to be able to contribute, to make myself useful. There are hundreds of thousands of people with paraplegia or quadriplegia in India. ...TOI on March 11, 2017, 2 a.m.
