In a Different World
A Photo Feature by Debashish Shom
In a world where identity is determined by socially fixed and acceptable norms of behaviour, autistic children have a hard time finding their place in the scheme of things. Because they communicate in an entirely different way, they are segregated from people equipped with socially accessible modes of communication. Endowed inordinately with various mental capabilities, they can also touch the sky. All they need is the attention and love that every human being deserves.
Debashish Shom teaches at Pathshala and is a freelance photographer.
