“Happiness is a state of mind. It’s just according to the way you look at things”- Walter Disney
In a world full of people who are constantly worn out from the vicious race, 7 years old Nethsara leads on life wearing a vibrant smile coming from the bottom of his heart, living up to the true meaning of the above quote. Destined to put up with a congenital growth defect must have been a real challenge, but we witnessed how determined he is to cherish every moment to the fullest instead of cursing or hating.
The Primary school Welikanda where Nethsara studies are located in a beautiful rural village full of nature’s splendour in North Central Province, Sri Lanka. Away from the rush and hustle, it is indeed a place someone can peacefully spend childhood.
Mrs Dinushi the class teacher-plays the role of a surrogate mother in her understanding of his needs and abilities. She sees huge potential in him and is convinced that he can excel in his studies. With her progressive mindset, she encourages Nethsara to engage in the same activities as the rest of the children of his age. She says that she lets him do all small tasks alone: like bringing the books, and turning pages to make him feel capable about himself and we watch a confident child answering questionnaires eagerly inside the classroom. For sure she has won there because in the video Nethsara cheerfully expresses that he assists his teacher. He claims to like writing letters and drawing pictures nicely despite the difficulty of holding the pencil in his hands. Therefore he is happily continuing his education with flying colours.
The kids blend along well with each other sharing a loving bond and in his own words, his classmates are “the best friends in the world”. Before school starts his friends arrange his desk and chair for him to sit on, during lunch hours they help him to grab the water bottle, and when it is time for outdoor activities his friends lift him and take him to the playground. He swings on the wooden swing tied to a tree, claps while others dance, and play along with the same enthusiasm. They all never hesitate to show affection and it is pretty obvious that Nethsara means a lot to them. The supportive background and Nethsara’s delightful perspective on life remind us none other than to see the silver lining amidst the dark clouds.
