My New Friend Has Autism And I See Her | Not That Different | Autism Awareness
Hey, Sara here with my new friend, Madhav.
Madhav is on the autism spectrum. He does certain things differently that get me thinking, but I realize that we are ‘not that different’ after all!
Akshita is a student of Bhavans B.P Vidya Mandir, Trimurti Nagar(Nagpur).
I saw her,
sitting, hesitating, on the first day of school;
while others flaunted their eyebrows,
they appeared cool.
I beckoned her with a cheer, but her body language told a ”no”.
Her eyes were awfully beautiful, I marvelled at them.
She noticed me, a little annoyed ’cause of my recent attempts;
I was curious,
to listen to her voice was my only tempt.
I wandered back home,
“‘It isn’t just autism,
the society isn’t cooperative too’.”
I felt in my bones.
I do not know about others but;
I saw her.
