Little Charmer : By Astha Gupta

profile essays on a personLast summer my sister joined a Casio keyboard class at a local music school. It was her fervent desire to learn to play the instrument. The school had students of all age groups who wanted to learn how to sing and play a musical instrument. Among the students, there was a notable individual: an eight year old blind boy.  He came to the class with his mother and played the harmonium (an Indian instrument similar to the keyboard) in an almost magical way. The teacher only had to touch his fingers to the keys according to the tune that the class was playing and he would all of the notes right without any help, on his first attempt.  He was an example for all of the other children there who had been blessed with the ability to see.

His fiercely independent spirit set him apart from everyone. He refused all offers of help in mundane activities like taking water or walking to his destination. He would touch a person’s face when meeting him/her for the first time just like you and me shake hands. That was his unique way to file away a person in his memory. His charming personality made him a darling to everyone in a very short time span. My sister is proud to have come in contact with such an inspirational personality. The credit for developing this optimistic attitude in that small kid goes to his parents who facilitated the all around development of his personality inspite of his handicap and gave him the mantra for life “ Count your blessings, rather than crying over what you don’t have”. Hats off to them.
