My World - Boy with cerebral palsy writes about life as he sees it
Medhaj Krishna was four years old when he saw a butterfly for the first time. He told his mother he was inspired and felt the need to write about it.
His mother Reshmi immediately wrote down in Malayalam - "Butterfly, butterfly, where are you headed on this journey".
Medhaj, who is now 14 years old, was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at birth, and undergoes speech and occupational therapy even today. Cerebral palsy is a group of permanent movement disorders that show up in early childhood.
Medhaj, who writes under the name Adoor Ayyappan has already published books of poetry, and is set to release his second book Ente Lokam, which translates into My World at the Sharjah International Book Fair on 10 November.
In My World, Medhaj has written about life and nature as he sees it. He believes that all children with disabilities must be part of mainstream society. Medhaj, who lives in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, will be reaching Sharjah ahead of the book release.
