My Thoughts

#WomensEqualityDay "Men are never so absurd as when they urge the inferiority of women." -Helen Keller.

I am literally nobody to review this book. Hence all I am going to do is show my love for it and tell you how this book makes me feel.

The struggle Helen Keller can be compared with nothing. She is fighting from the moment she was born. She learned around 60 signals to communicate with her love once.

Alexander Graham Bell suggested hiring a trainer for Helen Keller, Anne Sullivan was sent. Anne Sullivan became the new hope for Helen Keller. Anne was also visually challenged and started training Helen Keller. And this was the time Helen got to know about a world she was unaware of, language and everything has a name associated with it.

Later Helen Keller became the first visually and auditory challenged woman to clear B.A. exam in America.

The only word to describe this book is “INSPIRATION”.

Please do read this book.
