Life starts anew for a leprosy patient.[This thread is the joint winner of Topic based TOW contest for the week 29th January-4th February 2017]
Let me divert your attention to a rare disease prevalent since ancient times-leprosy.It can cause permanent loss of the nervous organs and disfiguration of the body.People suffering from this disease have been looked down upon and excluded from society for fear of spearding of this disease.
It was Mahatma Gandhi's vision to uplift such people in society and it has now been taken up by our current Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.
Here is my narration for a fresh start of such a leprosy affected old lady whose grandchild's embrace is the first feeling of love in her life..
Tears filled her eyes anew
Trickled down like drops of dew
But this time they were with joy
No reason to grieve and annoy
Time had flewn, age had arrived
No memories could now be derived
She was lonely in life since birth
Being looked down upon with mirth
The little hands clasped her neck
Making her heart fill with regret
If God could cure her of leprosy
She would have lived her life in ecstacy..
Entry for TOW.
