A 28-year-old woman is beautifully sewing her dreams in Jammu and Kashmir. Madhu, born with disability in her hands, started stitching clothes from a young age using her legs. As she gained expertise in her job, she earned a lot of praise in Udhampur, where she lives.
Her dream is to open a tailoring shop where she also wants to provide training to differently-abled persons like her so that they can become independent.
With a supportive family, she is raring to achieve her dreams. She had to, however, fight several taboos and prejudices along the way, she said.
"I just want to get better at tailoring. I know that my hands are not normal like others, but I have never let my disability come in my way. All the people are very supportive and I just want to be happy," Madhu said.
