    Book Review- Twilight's Children- Chronicles of Uncommon Lives Strength is the word that resonated and tied the book Twilight's Children for me as I read the emotions spread out before me on the pages that I did not want to stop turning. An anthology of Short stories and essays by 23 author's, it is a bouquet of fragrant emotions related to the differently abled. When I did my Occupational Therapy, we worked with adults and children with mental and physical disabilities on an everyday basis. One Book Review- Twilight's Children- Chronicles of Uncommon Lives Strength is the word that resonated and tied the book Twilight's Children for me as I read the emotions spread out before me on the pages that I did not want to stop turning. An anthology of Short stories and essays by 23 author's, it is a bouquet of fragrant emotions related to the differently abled. When I did my Occupational Therapy, we worked with adults and children with mental and physical disabilities on an everyday basis. One does not fathom the depth of pain, love, devotion, strength, dedication, patience and endurance that a human being is capable of until they have either experienced it or have associated with it at close quarters. Similarly one is witness to neglect, heartbreak, anxiety, uncertainty, lack of knowledge and information Two sides of a coin. The pages reiterate the need for articulation, acceptance and inclusion. The need for therapy, of friendship, of holding a hand or offering a shoulder to lean on for a time. The stories make you weep with the suppressed helplessness of lessons learnt and acceptance of what is 'Normal'. They also make you want to do something to change this scenario of turning a blind eye. A must read for children, all libraries and book clubs should stock it for to become a teaching tool in schools. That is my hope as I watch my daughter turn the page with a soft smile.

    Edited by Vasudha Chandna Gulati – a brilliant writer herself, the book is a collection of short stories and essays about those suffering from Intellectual Disabilities. It chronicles their life, struggles and successes in small and big moments. It sheds light not just on the challenges they face but also the stereotypes and discrimination they face in the hands of us ‘normal’ people. It brings forth not just their experiences but also those of their families, or those who step forward to look b Edited by Vasudha Chandna Gulati – a brilliant writer herself, the book is a collection of short stories and essays about those suffering from Intellectual Disabilities. It chronicles their life, struggles and successes in small and big moments. It sheds light not just on the challenges they face but also the stereotypes and discrimination they face in the hands of us ‘normal’ people. It brings forth not just their experiences but also those of their families, or those who step forward to look beyond the superficial. The stories, as the Editor’s Note correctly says, are heart-breaking while filling your heart with hope too. It is rare to see stories affect you so deeply that you cease to see the world like before again. When I first started reading the book I had expected to finish it in one sitting. How wrong was I! This isn’t a quick read, and you would be better off not trying to make it one. Each of the stories is profound, deeply emotional; each of the essays insightful and causes one to ponder at length. And yet, the best part about this book isn’t just the stories -heartbreaking and hopeful, as they are - but that one simple straight answer. It will not be fair of me to reveal it to you, though; because reading this book and discovering it for yourself, isn’t an experience you should miss.
