But on his 1st. birthday celebration, when he did not respond to clapping sound even, we decided to consult the doctor. After several checks and counter checks when doctor declared that Ashish is ‘deaf’, we were stunned to imagine the future of our son. As parents, we had no option left but to trained him at home and/or get him admitted to any school where he could be trained to self reliance.
