Dysgraphia, a learning disability (writing as well as reading), has been reflecting in his personal profile. For the very same reason, he doesn’t have a unique signature of his own, as he could not replicate his signature despite constant efforts to make one. Hence, he faces difficulties in maintaining his bank account.
Learning disabilities are never a stumbling block to our success in life. The ability of our mind to acclimatize to such disabilities could become one of our greatest strengths in the long run of life. He has been proving this through his determined journey for the amelioration of society. Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. His positive calibers and puissance veto him to believe in giving up and through his unwonted deeds, he is proving that a person can accomplish the goals despite having any kinds of disabilities.
