How did Bholi’s teacher play an important role in changing the course of her life?
Bholi was a shy and innocent girl. She fell from a cot when she was ten months old which damaged a part of her brain so she was not as sharp as other children. She could not speak till she was five and when she eventually did, she stammered. When Bholi went to school for the first time and her teacher asked her name, she stammered and everyone laughed at her. This made Bholi very upset. She was conscious of her pock marks as well.
Her teacher didn’t laugh at her. She motivated her to speak and attend school daily. She assured her that one day she would become the most learned in the village and no one would dare to laugh at her.
Her teacher’s words motivated her and Bholi became a sensible and confident girl.
