One Woman's Incredible Journey From Darkness to LighteBook - 2012
The life and work of Miriam Batliwala is an amazing and heart-rending story to be read by the fortunate ones so that they understand the environmental, emotional and financial hardships she has undergone. Despite being visually challenged, she overcame all hindrances and obstacles and used them to achieve success in her life. She showed that she could stand on her own feet, accepted any job that came her way and worked honestly with sincerity. The way she faced the world is like a pole star to those who are handicapped and develop a negative mind. Her life is a lesson that everyone can face the world, work, and live honorably commanding respect in society. Her enormous setback in terms of vision may have been compensated with an incredible power of memory. Her activities include traveling overseas all alone, playing golf, netball, hockey and swimming, running an orphanage, practicing and teaching yoga, and looking after family, besides commitment to social activities. When all these are a challenge even to those who are gifted with everything in life, she does them all with ease and perfection. Miriam's amazing determination, immeasurable courage, daring willpower, persistence, perseverance and confidence makes her sail in the same life boat as us, to reach the shore of satisfaction and contentment in her life. I feel her life story is a great inspiration and I am sure many can borrow a leaf or two from her work and wisdom to face all eventualities with presence of mind and healthy involvement to lead a worthy and lively life.
