It was the first time I saw her speaking with someone. She was on the other side of the library hall with one of my friend. They shared a laughter as I approach there, and it appeared like they enjoyed their moment. I greeted my friend and said “Hi” to the Miss. I realized that I will get late to catch the bus so I gave a quick hug to my friend and said goodbye to the Miss. 🙂

The next day, I was sitting on a couch in the corridor, waiting for my next class. There she came, walking in my direction. Her class was next to my class, so she sits and waits. “Hi” I greeted her. She said nothing. :/ Maybe she didn’t hear it. I stood up and moved to my class as my professor entered the classroom. 🤓

I didn’t really know, “If she heard and ignored me, or didn’t she heard my salutation?” I asked myself. 🤔
The class got over. It was an interesting session, but I was very tired. Heading towards the bus station, I saw her walking to-and-fro the bus stop. “So she also takes the bus?” I asked myself. Maybe this time, she will hear my salutation. When I reached the bus stop, I said in a loud voice “Good Afternoon”. Now it was confirmed, I know she won’t reply. 😳

Two weeks later, I was in the Math center, helping junior students with their homework. She came, passed by, and sat down. Miss was really silent. I was able to notice she had a problem, she needed help, but she won’t call the Math tutor. Then she raises her hand and made a sign to call the tutor. Why can’t she just say “Excuse me, sir?” I asked myself. Here my friend came, she greeted me and I greet her back. 🙂

“Can you please help my friend?” my friend asks.
“Sure, I will.” I replied.
“Thanks, and please be patient with her; she is deaf.” 😐

  1. So did you help her?
    I think, she isn’t deaf, she’s just special…a very special girl! We’ll never understand her pain still we have a lot of problems with our lives, we are so busy with our lives we think no one has it harder than us….we are same, we’re ordinary. But see this girl, people call her deaf, she probably has so many problems in her life still she has a smile on her face coz yes she is different, it’s not bcoz she can’t hear or she’s deaf but bcoz she is very SPECIAL! 🙂

    1. Thank you. That’s pin-point. You never know with what big stuffs they’re dealing with. (Society has made many who are easy on scripting than on knowing all & helping.)
      Its good to have you here, Maniparna.

  4. Interesting story… I like the build up! Wasn’t sure what your opinion on the deafness was, though, until reading the comments.. Curious to learn more–I’m actually deaf, too! I hear with a Cochlear Implant. I’ve had it since 1996, and absolutely LOVE it!

    1. Hello Danielle, firstly, thanks for reading the post. I don’t have an opinion on deafness but I have respect for people who have kept quiet. Its amazing to see how respectful they are and certainly they carry an amazing way of decision making in a world with more people to pull you down.
      Hope your ears helps sounds good to hear and you’re well. 😊 Glad to have you here and thank you so much for sharing your story. 😊
