The general concerns expressed by the young people with disabilities are numerable, especially in the developing countries of the world. While youth with visual impairment face the difficulties of accessing education, reading material, people with physical disabilities face barriers due to no ramps and elevators. Commonly, all people with disability face and suffer discrimination and social exclusion in one form or the other. I intend to reflect on the challenges faced by students...

Education is a human right and need for everyone in the world. How I wake up every morning taking for granted the fact that I have the ability to go to school every weekday here in the United States. My great grandmother (who lived in the period of the British Raj in India) only had a seventh grade education. My grandmother had a post secondary education, but only at a local school and college. My mother traveled to different states in India to study and get a job, but she neve...

Kenya is facing drought. The last time we had adequate amounts of rainfall was last year's long rain season, March to May. To understand how serious this is, you first have to understand the seasons in Kenya. We have four seasons: hot and dry season from December to February, long rains season from March to May, cold and wet season from June to August and lastly, short rains season from September to October. It is also important to note that agriculture is the backbone of...

When you find out perfect is just a word You'll learn to live You'll learn to love When you find out perfect doesn't exist You'll learn to appriciate the little things The little weight you've gained The little spots on your cheeks When you find out what beautiful means Then for sure you'll know what perfect is

Be you. Be the amazing you. No matter what you have to go through in life, no matter what people say, what they think you should change about yourself, no matter what you have to overcome, do it the way you do it. There is nothing as courageous as staying true to yourself while you deal with life. There is nothing as precious as believing in yourself and reaching your goals and still managing to be yourself throughout it all. Let you be different, because being different make...

I like sitting on an old dusty chair. Dragging it all the way outside to the balcony. 4th floor. I am sitting on that chair and looking around. Dusk time. The crickets have started chirping and the chirping of the birds faded some moments ago. The distant sounds of the temple bells echo and woman decked up in ornaments and sarees offer flowers and sweets. To that God. That God who owns the world, the universe. Whom you’ve caged in a place with four walls. I see ladies behin...

As I walked through the busy streets of Mumbai, my eyes rested upon a lady across the street. She must have been in her mid-40s, elegantly dressed up with an expensive looking bag in her hand. She wasn’t alone, she had a full group of her counterparts with her. She had been constantly staring at me without even blinking. Then she said something to her group of richly-clad friends and they all stared down at me with furious looks on their faces, while I was left to wonder what I c...

Cairo... either you love it or you hate it. For some it's an ugly city. Yes, it really is an old, dirty and very polluted city. Politics are a mess, sometimes I am even afraid of talking about it. There is social inequality everywhere. The traffic is mad. And when I say it's mad, it is really crazy! You, who live in a "first world" country, please don't come with comparisons with your city, however big it may be. The competition is fierce, the flow of people is chaotic... Ins...

After I was done with my grad school and have had some experiences in field data collection, I have decided to be a researcher and a lecturer. Going to the fields, walking around in the villages, talking to the local authorities and of course to our beneficiaries, it has been so lovely for me. Those beautiful and meaningful experiences have been shared in class to my students. With all those memories, ideas, hopes and dreams, I have lived wholeheartedly. It has been fortunate t...
