Sarah Cooper was born with a disability that she hated since she was able to crawl, walk, hear and talk. Since kindergarten she was most of the times left or rejected from the circle of students in her class. Her only proud and cherished moment was when she was recognized for her best and excellent end of year results where the whole class was ordered to clap for her. She could not have a sincere and single friend for her emotional, psychological and mental support. But all changed from the day she met John Carnegie, her senior and mentor in public speaking. She was fighting hard against her long-lasting disability as she was desperately forlorn about it, the speech-language impairments.
The Covid-19 shook mankind as never before and each little positive gesture that we could think of double both in our actions and rewards that we would never expect. Humanity is in jeopardy. Likewise, this is the story of a gentleman, a teacher who stood bold and determined in the adversity of the invisible ghost. Frontiers closed, schools are under temporary lock down and the escalation in grocery and vegetable prices shocked both the rich and the poor.

The decision is yours and I respect it.

Everyone at a certain time in their life experienced bullying in its different forms and people often feel powerless against it. It all occurred one fortnight ago. I was shaking uncontrollably and stood rooted to the spot. I replied defensively. On that day, I decided to reveal my tormentors’ real faces to my parents. I possess my parents’ innate capacity of memorizing things. I possess my paternal grandparents’ wisdom and I inherited my maternal grandparents’ degree of naughtiness and undetermined mimicries.
