SA­HA­RAN­PUR: Uma Sharma, the direc­tor of Sa­ha­ran­pur’s Na­tional Pub­lic School, whose lower body is par­a­lyzed, has become a source of in­spi­ra­tion for the peo­ple of the city.The 64year-old Sharma is bedrid­den for the past 10 years, but that did not stop her from work­ing for her school and car­ry­ing out her du­ties to­wards the chil­dren. Over­com­ing all the ad­ver­sity, Sharma has been in­struct­ing au­thor­i­ties from her home with the help of tablet, mo­bile phone and even takes vir­tual classes. Nar­rat­ing her story, Sharma said that she started work­ing in 1994 and was paral­ysed in 2007 since then she is ac­tive in the ad­min­is­tra­tion work from home.“I had the pas­sion to teach the stu­dents and make them ca­pa­ble enough to live a bet­ter life. I was par­a­lyzed in 2007 and dur­ing that time I lost both my daugh­ter and son. Still, I did not give up. I tried to carry out my re­spon­si­bil­ity to­wards the chil­dren of the school,” she told ANI.
