MENTALLY CHALLENGED SCOUTS AND GUIDES.

When we reached to the center their teacher introduced us with them. They belong to down syndrome, deaf and dump, Autism etc.. But they just refused to become our friends. One scout belong to Autism, he is not aware about himself and the surroundings. He always smiles. If dots are put he can join them but what that letter means he does not understand. Down syndrome scouts and guides were trying to learn rhymes and sums and next day they were able to answer some of the questions. Deaf and dump group was the most enthusiastic of all. After the first day experience we went home and learned some sign language with great enthusiasm. Like that both side learned from each other. They were also eager to teach us how to express. Slowly both side grew a bondage of friendship understanding and love. They used to wait eagerly for us. Afterwards when we met them in different camps they were excited and with the gesture they showed that they recognised us . Deaf and Dump children, despite of their inability were very quick learners and they used to help other disabled children in doing their work. They definitely proved that disability is not inability.
