A mini-ratna that lends a hand and more to the disabled


3
Ten-year-old Zahur lost his arms in a mishap. His father, a low-income farmer, brought him to a medical camp distributing free prosthetics in Ladakh in the hope of getting new arms for his child.
Richika Padubidri from the Ratna Nidhi Charitable Trust, the non-government organisation that organised the medical camp, saw Zahur’s face light up with a smile when he was given prosthetic arms. She couldn’t help but ask him what he’d do with his new arms. “I’m going to learn how to write, just like all my other friends who go to school he told us,” Padubidri recalls the boy’s simple words.
