Thank you for posting the Esha website. Really interesting, and I admire you for your involvement in this project.

Several of my friends are involved in a project called 'Chatterbox' where a weekly newstape is put together by volunteers reading from the local paper. This is distributed to people whose sight is not good enough for them to read.

The sight mentioned mainstream schooling for blind/visually disabled people. In Britain, we have to be as inclusive as possible in our schools (sometimes, in respect of people with learning and behavioural difficulties, beyond the extent that is really feasible) and so simple, practical things like rounding off edges, marking steps with bright tape, enlarging worksheets, enabling the use of laptops, can be very helpful to children with poor sight.

As for your tag, it's hard to choose. It's been a good week. I think it was seeing my 20-month-old granddaughter's happy face, upon seeing the Christmas lights turned on in our town, and hearing her say "Wow! Lights, pretty!"

lovely tag!

This one was required to make me see the silver line in cloud.

In an otherwise pathetic week, the best was attending meetings with the DGM from Chennai on a really interesting subject.I am getting noticed for my good work like you and getting appreciated by people whose appreciation matter.

So what, if our common bête noire is dyeing out of insecurity and making life impossible.

Madhuri Shinde said...

Ur reply has somehow developed a bond between u and me...coz one of my best friend said the same thing...

respect may not be anathema to loving...but for few people respect can be anathema to living...

i don't know, may be i am confused.

Hi Zoe: This is wonderful! Can we get a digital copy of Chatterbox here somewhere? Perhaps if a soft copy is available someplace on the net, we could downloand it and make a CD copy and send it to children here too.. ok, maybe I am asking for too much..

the simple things really help, but my sense is that they help the sighted children more, because these children leanr early in life what it is to be considerate to other people, and thats a valuable lesson :-)

I like that thought.. lights, pretty! :-) could you post some pics of this little darling on ur blog please?

Hi Aradhna: Congratulations!! I have always told you and will repeat that you have only one limitation - your imagination. Not your intelligence or your capability.. so sit back and sip the champagne! and enjoy the moment! - To the first of the very, many to come!

Hi Di: Congratulations!! And which trng was this?

Hi Sugarlips: Thank you!! Enjoy the week!! And congratulations on your brother's engagement! :-) post some pics if you can...

Hi Madhuri: At the moment, I will sit by you in your confusion.. and should you ever need to talk to clear it out, all one needs to do is to turn around and talk a little more.

You didn't tell me the best thing that happened to you this week?

Hi Vampire: my screen to blame then! :-)

I think it is recorded straight onto cassette tapes. I'll ask my friends - it might take a little while as they are all in Norwich, 25km away - not far, but I don't see them frequently. Chatterbox is not aimed at children however, but for older people who can't see well enough to read the newspaper any more.

We had a severely disabled child at the village primany school, we were quite concerned that she wouldn't be able to cope but in fact the other children took a lot of care of her. She needed a full-time adult carer too.

I haven't taken any photos lately, I'll see what I can do. I think I put one up a couple of months ago when the baby was born.

Hi Appu: Welcome Back!

Hi Madhuri: Tell me more please.

Hi Zoe: am sure the pictures will come now, at Christmas ...
