What Does Paraplegic Mean?
Paraplegia, sometimes called partial paralysis, is a form of paralysis in which function is substantially impeded from the waist down. Most people with paraplegia have perfectly healthy legs. Instead, the problem resides in either the brain or the spinal cord, which cannot send or receive signals to the lower body due to an injury or disease.
What Is Paraplegia?
Paraplegia is almost always the result of damage to the brain, spinal cord, or both. In most cases, spinal cord injuries to the thoracic, lumbar, or sacral spinal cord are to blame. When these injuries occur, signals cannot travel to and from the lower regions of the body, and the body is prevented from sending signals back up the spinal cord to the brain.

Every Child Is A Gift From God
The world has changed a lot, but still, in many parts of India, many people are not happy with the birth of a girl child. In that case, what will be the response when a girl child is born with a disability?
What type of feeling or thought comes into your mind when you see a differently-abled person? How do you treat with a special child? Every child is a gift of God and the creator has a special aim for his creation. Never curse the special child or differently-abled person thinking that their disability is a punishment from God. Remember, God never punishes his children, but he always showers his blessings abundantly.
