When Parents Tried to Fix Her Visual Impairment, She Was Inspired By a Poster and a Handyman (MOTH Monday)

When Parents Tried to Fix Her Visual Impairment, She Was Inspired By a Poster and a Handyman (MOTH Monday)

Today is MOTH Monday on Good News Network: In partnership with The Moth, a nonprofit dedicated to the art of storytelling, we bring you the most uplifting speakers from live stages across the world.

When Anagha Mahajan was a child growing up in India, she was often forced to spend hours in a dark room focusing on a candle so she could improve the vision in her left eye.

As a means of trying to improve her focus and her attention, she hung an inspirational poster on the wall with a little poem about how it was important for her to try her hardest.

Surprisingly enough, the poster did help her to “get better” – but she says it was only because of the handyman who would regularly come in to fix her air conditioner.

Listen to her story below…

The Moth gives people an opportunity to tell a true story in front of a live audience, and sometimes their stories are chosen to air on the radio show, now celebrating its tenth year, and broadcasting on 485+ public radio stations—and on The Moth podcast, which is downloaded over 52 million times a year.

The Moth’s third book, Occasional Magic: True Stories About Defying the Impossible is now available for purchase through your favorite booksellers.
