Theatre play in Punjab narrates the inspiring story of Helen Keller
October 21, 2017
The Natyam Theatre Group from Jaitu in Punjab organised a theatre festival recently.
On the sixth day of the festival, a team from Assam staged a play 'Helen', which was based on the real life of Helen Keller.
Helen Keller was an American author, political activist, a lecturer and also the first deaf-blind person to get a bachelor degree of arts.
The play described the life story of Helen who couldn't hear, speak or see but had supportive parents.
Her parents challenged her disability by appointing a visually impaired teacher, who was an expert at dealing with disabled children.
The play showed how Helen and her teacher communicated with the help of sign language. It also highlighted the role of a teacher in one's personal growth.
