A Book I Have Recently Read
Since my childhood I am an avid reader. Whenever I get spare time I read books, novels, anthologies etc of all categories. Recently I have read “The Story of My Life” by Hellen Keller. It’s a touching story of the author’s growing up from childhood with multiple disabilities and how she challenged them and became an educated woman. It narrates the first twenty years of her life and her remarkable relationship with many noble and affectionate persons, especially her beloved teacher Miss Ann Sullivan. Hellen became blind and deaf at the age of two. But she triumphed all adversities and learnt to read and write. In her autobiography Helen describes her experiences with so much ease and sincerity in such a lucid style that it cannot but arouse love and wonder for her. But the most striking feature of this book is her strong will and iron determination to cross all the hurdles of a handicapped person in her own life. One can hardly forget such a touching book. I have also watched Black, a cinema inspired from her story. But reading the book is altogether an unforgettable experience.
