Kaveri Hazarika: The saga of hope
As William Ernest Henley in his poem Invictus rightly said 'I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul,' which certainly escalates one's lost zeal for life and augments the flame to strive for success. And so does the story of Kaveri Hazarika, who thorough her earnest efforts prove it again that, we are born with mere outlines of a sketch but the liberty to fill it with coruscating paint lies with us.
Hailing from the northeastern part of the country, Kaveri was born in Guwahati, Assam, located at the heart of the city. She is suffering from sensorineural hearing loss and speech defects, a congenital disorder which in lame man's language may be termed as 80% hearing impaired.

But, has that made any difference to her life? Perhaps not, as she went to acquire things and inculcate a new identity for herself in the creative arena, which a commoner despite normalcy might have hiccups in achieving.

Having been awarded for her contribution to the field of artwork by the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation, Kaveri began her schooling at Maria's Public School, Guwahati. After striding from nursery to seventh standard, she later on switched over to National Open School from where she completed her HSLC in the 2002. Later from the same institution Kaveri went on to complete a 'Vocational Course in Desk Top Printing' in the year 2004, with a heartwarming result of 85%.

Right from childhood she is open towards creativity and keeps a keen interest in painting. Her imaginative and inventive attitude helped her getting more shots in the arm. As later she went on to attain Diploma in Beauty & Hair; Advertising in Print 2005 (Certificate in Multimedia); Authoring Multimedia Suite 2007 (Diploma in Multimedia).

Her jaw dropping skills include mastery over Adobe Illustrator CS, Adobe Photoshop CS2, Corel Draw 12, Macromedia Director MX-2004, Macromedia Authorware 7.01 Adobe Premiere Pro - 1.5, Sound Forge 8.0, 3D Max 9, Adobe After Effects 6.5.

So, this pops up the question again, is physical disability a barrier? The answer is for us to introspect.

"Within each of us lies the power of our consent to health and sickness, to riches and poverty, to freedom and to slavery. It is we who control these, and not others," said Richard Bach. Kaveri Hazarika certainly walks this.

It's easy to be grateful when life is giving you roses. The task becomes more complicated when you are feeling the sting of thorns. All of us have experienced challenges or 'bad' things in our lives. But, as humans we are wise to transform our crises into blessings; and challenges into opportunities.

Each time we take the opportunity to be grateful for who we are, what we do and what we get to experience and have in our life, we increase our energy. Instead of being weighed down by life's events, we are lifted up. The girl Kaveri Hazarika, would ignite hopes for many souls.
