Life is different to all. Everyone has got some different definitions of life .Bishamber singh who was the sarpaanch of his village has everything in his life but as we know, no one has got a perfect life. Biggest worry of life was his daughter jeevika. Bishamber always considered Jeevika as a curse. He thought that he must have done some wrong and as a result he got Jeevika and lost his wife too. He used to blame God for giving him such a child.Jeevika was different for others. She was only 8 years old and was know as champa the simpleton. Being autistic she had a different world of hers. Being 8 she behaved like a 4 year old for which she was often criticised. Her heart was as clear as glass with no negative thoughts ,all she wanted was to live happily in her world. She was quite innocent from heart but the world was not able to see her innocence rather they used to ignore her. 

She was very interested in painting. She loved when someone used to convey her something with diagrams. In her locality,there were no schools and non of them were educated. Champa being autistic was considered a handicap. Citizens use to look her with their pitiful eyes. Sometimes a mad, sometimes handicap, sometimes fool. Champa was always recognised this ways. 

Things never remains the same. To teach every one the meaning of autism sharda arrived. She was a highly educated lady who was assigned as a government officer. Sharda was really shocked to see people's perception about about champa. With a heavy voice she said 'you all are handicap. Yes you heard right you all are handicap to make a girl with a clear heart handicap. What if she is autistic. We all are so busy in watching her faults that we forgot to watch her innocence. The one who is misjudging someone or trying to push one down is a real handicap.'

All eyes were down. Bishamber with a crying voice called Jeevika to her.

Now she was Jeevika not champa the simpleton. Hence after she continued the way she was but now thoughts have been changed and everyone loved her.
