Mothers of disabled children face stigma and oppression from society, and also from family, friends and loved ones. CE celebrates Mother’s Day (May 14) by identifying some of these mothers who are being awarded by Sri Arunodhayam.
CHENNAI: Being a mother is indeed difficult — even more so when you have a child slightly different from the others. When a healthy child is born, everyone congratulates the mother, but if the child has health issues, the very same people blame and shun her. This is the story of thousands of mothers in India, who face immense societal pressure in addition to the inevitable difficulties inherent in taking care of special children.
