This is the story of AYAN as to how he has transformed himself
from being hearing impared to hearing empowered child. In the district of
Bijnore, block Sayohara, Village Balla Nagala, Mohammad Ayan was born in the
house of Akram Hussain six years ago. On his birth, whole house and the
village celebrated the occasion.
As he started growing slowly, after seventh/eighth months, his
parents started worrying as he was unable to respond to the sounds of
clapping and toys etc. After being advised by other persons, Akram Hussan
went to the district hospital for treatment of the child. Audiometry of Ayan
was conducted after routine diagnoses were over. The child was found to have hearing
imparement as per medical advice. His parents were told that the child would
not be able to speak also for longer time.
After five years, during house hold survey, the local
authorities went to the house of Akram Hussain and asked him to send his
child to the school for studies. His father had refused to send him to the
school mentioning that his child is very naughty and clashes with other
children. Accordingly, he would not be able to adjust with them. Even after
this the local authorities had continued to contact Akram Hussain, resulting
in his sending Ayan to the Primary School in his village. In first month of his attending the school,
regular teachers even complained to Itinerant teacher about the child. The itinerant teacher took the concern of
child. He started speech therapy. After this Ayan started improving in his
behaviour and he started coming to the school at prescribed time.
He also started taking interest in writings. His father, who
is a teacher in a private school at Haldua, felt happy about the progress of
the child and complimented to the itinerant teacher. He demanded hearing aid
equipment. The same was made available to Aryan. He started speaking Papa
and Papa Namaste in broken
language. Then only, his family appreciated the importance of hearing aid
instrument and began the upkeep of the instrument.

World Disabled Day during the cultural programme being organized in his
school. On 4th December, 2013 the same was reported in local newspaper Janvani. The villagers of AYAN were
surprised and were in and awe about his performance. They felt that if any
work is performed with sincerely and seriousness, nothing can block the
