Watch this beautiful mom and child video – where a child with hearing loss demonstrates the meaning of love at first sound!

Love at first sound is adorable, especially when the loved one is just a wee 8-month old! It is indeed beautiful to watch Jonathan’s reaction to hearing his mom’s voice for the first time.
Jonathan, a child with a hearing loss, has been fitted with a cochlear implant, a digital hearing aid otherwise known as the bionic ear. According to The Cochlear Implant Group of India (CIGI), a cochlear implant is a computerized device that provides hearing to people with ‘nerve deafness’ by stimulating the hearing nerve with coded electrical signals.
There has been many box office hits in India which deal with differently-abled individuals – Anjali, Taare Zameen Par, My Name Is Khan to name a few. Such movies, to a large extent romanticize the problem into a story of winner-against-all-odds. Reality however, is painfully different.
Science and medicine have progressed immensely and come a long way in terms of available treatments and medications. Yet this does not help mitigate the suffering involved as much as the support of friends and families can. We hear several stories about children being dumped because of their ‘differences’. While we may argue that it is the duty of a parent to take care of her children, no matter what, it is difficult to fully enter these circumstances unless one has been through them.
Apart from the child having to overcome his/her shortcomings, the family of such a child faces extreme pressures from almost all sides. Learning to cope with their child’s special needs, handling the cost involved for treatment and care-giving, dealing with the inevitable feelings of guilt and irrational fears, not to mention society’s reaction to their beloved child, their whole life is turned upside-down. Priorities change drastically – sleep, ‘me’ time or even a worry-free, peaceful evening becomes luxuries. Here is a touching blog of a mother’s experiences in bringing up her severely disabled child.
Truly speaking, I cannot even begin to understand the angst of such parents – at the most I can only imagine their pain. Stories like Jonathan’s bring a small smile to all of us in a world where sadness is only all too common.

Tripti Dimri had completely won everyone over with her performance in Bulbbul. so there is a great deal riding on her new Netflix film Qala.
Netflix’ latest release, Qala (2022) is Tripti Dimri’s second collaboration with Anvita Dutt and Clean Slate Filmz after Bulbbul (2020). Her performance was applauded in 2020 with Bulbbul’s character becoming well known in most Indian households.

A few Bangalore schools recently did a search of students' bags for mobile phones that are banned inside, and were shocked to find condoms, oral contraceptives, cigarettes, etc.
When schools in Bangalore conducted surprise checks of the bags of students to see if they were bringing cell phones to school, they were in for a nasty surprise.
As this report in the Deccan Herald says, “In addition to cell phones, they found condoms, oral contraceptives, cigarettes, lighters and whiteners in the bags of students of grades 8, 9 and 10. To their credit, the school authorities handled the situation with maturity- instead of suspending the students, they informed the parents and/ or guardians and advised them to seek counselling for their wards.”
