After returning home from school, there are two people with
whom I like to share all my news. They enjoy listening to my
tales.
The first person is my nani. She is always anxious to listen
to me. She waits for me to return from school. She is quite old
and often has back pains. She cannot see or hear well. Everyday
in the morning, papa reads the newspaper aloud to her. She
does the rest of her work herself. If someone tries to help her
she gets very upset. Though she cannot see properly she is very
fond of cutting vegetables. She says – these days children do
not know how to cut vegetables properly.

Ravi bhaiya teaches in a
college. The students of the
college respect him a lot. A few
of them come home to study
from him. Ravi bhaiya is very
fond of listening to music and
taking part in plays. He enjoys
chatting with his friends and
going out with them.
He has a good sense of humour
and makes all of us laugh.

Bhaiya carries a white stick when he goes out. Looking at
him, moving around in the house, no one can say that he cannot
see. He likes to do all his work himself. If someone tries to help
him against his wish he gets angry. Whenever he needs any
help, he asks for it.
Some of Bhaiya’s students take books from him and return
them after recording them on tapes. Ravi bhaiya listens to these
tapes.
Bhaiya has many other books too. The pages of these books
are thick and have rows of raised points (dots). He reads by
running his fingers on the raised dots.
To have fun with bhaiya, I sometimes change the place of
his stick. He does get upset but never gets angry. After all, I am
his favourite sister– Seema.
I had hardly reached the door that bhaiya spoke up – Seema,
you seem to be very happy today.
Bhaiya recognises not only me but all the other family
members from the sound we make as we move. He can even tell
whether I am happy or sad.
Bhaiya ! Finally I am in the football team – I shared my news
with him. He patted me and said lovingly – From today, you are
my football coach!
i Seema’s father reads the newspaper aloud to her
nani. How do you help old people?
i What kind of problems do people have in old age?
Children take interest in stories. Children can be sensitised by
discussing the characters in this story.

on the outline drawn. You can see that the paper is raised on the

You have seen that Ravi bhaiya reads special types of books.
How were these books made? Who first thought of these books?
Let us find out about it.
Louis Braille belonged to France. One day, when he was
three years old, he was playing with his father’s tools. Suddenly,
a pointed tool hurt his eyes. He lost his eyesight. He had keen
interest in studies. He did not give up. He kept thinking of
different ways to read and write. Finally he found a way – reading
by touching and feeling. This way of reading later came to be
known as the Braille script.
In this type of a script, a row of raised dots are made on a
thick paper. Because these dots are raised they can be read by
running the fingers on them. This script is based on six points.
The Braille script has undergone many changes these days.
This has made reading and writing simpler. Braille can now
also be written using the computer.

If you show the children the actual Braille script they will be able to
understand it better.
