Our life is full of hurdles.
Then too we overcome it with courage.
But, the biggest hurdle comes
At a time of settling down.

A person whose vitiligo is not visible
Refuses it due to visibility.
A person who wears a prosthesis
refuses it due to appearance.
A person who has a minor disability
refuses it to even meet.

We get frustrated, demotivated and shattered.

But, always have trust in God.
He must have surely written a script for us.
Though, currently, we are going through tragedy.
But there will be sure.
Tonnes of happiness for us all.
