I had a visitor yesterday, a hearing impaired teenaged girl. I was showing her around the house and finally my small puja cupboard. She liked the way things were arranged and was smiling all the way. She touched the tiny bells and told me in sign language "You must be hearing the sound of these bells". I just did not know how to react, I was almost on the verge of tears. I realised how often we take things for granted. Hearing the sound of bells ringing is a petty thing for me but not for her. It is truly said that a person who has lost something will realise the value of that even more. I now realise how lucky I am to be a normal person. Somehow, I am not able to get over this incident at all.
