Disabled but not disheartened

OUR CORRESPONDENT, Patuakhali
Disabled but not disheartened
Falguni Saha

Life is a challenge, and 21-year-old Falguni Saha is meeting it in more ways than one. Afflicted with physical disability after a tragic accident, this girl student of Jahangirnagar University (JU) is preparing herself for becoming a BCS officer.

In 2002, Falguni, a resident of Bat-tola area of Galachipa upazila in Patuakhali district, visited her neighbour’s house and then went to the roof. But her hands were caught in electricity wires. Relatives and neighbours had to detach her with a stick from the wires.

Her wrists were severely burned from electricity shocks.

She was first taken to the Barisal Sher-e-Bangla Medical College Hospital, but the condition of her hands deteriorated there due to extreme negligence of the doctors on duty for four days. Later, she was taken to an Indian hospital, where doctors had no choice but to amputate her hands from the wrist.

Even though Falguni was shocked initially after losing her hands, she soon came back to normal life with new enthusiasm. She started going to school with other children. She achieved A+ plus in PSC, JSC, SSC and HSC exams. At present, she is studying in geography and environment in JU as a final-year student.  

She now combines the remaining parts of her two hands to perform daily work. She believes that she will fulfil her dream of becoming a BCS officer by overcoming all adversity.

Life has not stopped for Falguni after the terrible mishap; she has carved out a niche for herself with tremendous perseverance and hard labour.
