STORY OF LAKSHMI- DISABLED LADY
It was the year 2018 when we meet our artistic lady Mrs. Lakshmi during some art exhibitions. Lakshmi kept some terracotta Diya’s for sell; for our surprise, those diyas were beautifully colored by Lakshmi. Later while working with her we came to know about her health issues.
Lakshmi was working hard to meet both ends despite certain body conditions. She was suffering from Menorrhagia, a severe blood loss during periods. Due to poor economic conditions, she was not able to afford the cost for
the operation which was suggested by some doctors.
It was an afternoon of a crispy winter. We were about to wind up our menstruation session in one of the government schools. Most of the girls went back to their respective classes, but one Hindi speaking girl was moving around me with some doubts on her face. I initiated the conversation and there came a doubt. “Madam periods ke time ladkon ko hath lagane se hum pregnant hote hai kya??” I laughed and replied to her “No not”!!! and explained a pregnancy for her.
