This year’s Konkani Yuva Sammelan became real inspirational event. And inspiration was young poet Shraddha Garad. In spite of having her whole body below the shoulders paralysed, she wrote poems on mobile and her poetry book was released. And she came personally for the function. And literally inspired the whole audience, including students.

34-year old Shraddha Garad from Madgao was one of the most enthusiastic writer and performer till recently. She wrote poems and articles, anchored news on TV channels and even conducted a special programme Asturichi Osmitai on Goa365. But unexpectedly developed degeneration of central nervous system. Doctors gave up. But she didn’t. Continued reading. Also writing poems on mobile phone. And travelled all the way to Pedne in ambulance, to witness the most memorable moment of her life. Release of her poetry book.

 Writer Naman Sawant Dhavaskar took initiative to get her book published. And she told the audience, Shradha doesn’t need your sympathy. She needs empathy. Let us get inspiration from her. To live and let live.
