We are the World Blogfest is here with its 11th edition, second post of 2018 and my sixth post on #WATWB to spread peace, kindness, and humanity on social media, a few of us have worked together to create the We are the World Blogfest. In a world where news and social media are awash with negativity, we aim to turn the focus onto small but significant stories that renew our faith in humanity.
Disability Does Not Mean Inability
I was impressed much by the quotes – “Disability Does Not Mean Inability”. And I love to use Differently Able Persons rather than the phrase Disabled Persons. They are more talented than the ordinary people. They excel in their field and motivate others as role models. The last #WATWB highlighted one such inspiration Shalini Saraswathi.
In this post, I feel happy to feature another motivating charm guy Mr. Karthik Kumar. Twenty-year-old Karthik Kumar is an internationally famous singer who can sing in Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam, Punjabi, Marathi, Telugu, English and Arabic, play keyboards, guitar and tabla and has committed over 2000 songs to memory. What makes these accomplishments all the more remarkable is the fact that he is autistic.
“Karthik was diagnosed with autism at the age of three,” says Krishna, his father. Further he adds, “Initially, we were shocked and upset and but soon came to terms with it and visited several doctors and psychologists for a proper evaluation and treatment.”
Though the disorder has restricted his communication skills, comprehension and social interaction with people, it has not sapped Karthik’s passion for music. With the love and encouragement from family, his twin brother and his music teacher Al Noor, he’s now able to excel in his music.
“My biggest ambition is to become a renowned musician and be able to live independently”
– Karthik Kumar
I wish him a bright future in music and in his life.
