Helen Keller....!

Assalam o alaikum

Hope you are fine safe and sound. Today I sharing history about Helen Keller.

Helen Keller lost her vision and hearing abilities when she was almost two years old. Since she became deaf and blind at a very young age, she couldn't understand the concept of words. So, if she hit a table, she knew that something was there, but she didn't understand that thing she hit has a name called 'table' and she can refer to that thing using its name.

Since she did not understand the existence of words, she didn't understand the concept of sentences either. As most of the thoughts in our brain are in the forms of sentences (we all talk to ourselves, don't we?), it was impossible for her to form thoughts. This drove to her to the brink of madness. As a result, she was always throwing tantrums and eating food from the plates of other family members. Her parents, who were also rich and felt pity for her, gave in to her tantrums and gave her whatever she demanded.

All these changed when Anne Sullivan came to teach Helen when she was 6 years old. It changed her life and she became known throughout the world. If not for Anne Sullivan, Helen Keller would have remained that unruly spoiled kid, and might not have achieved anything significant.

I hope you like it and give thumbs up.
