A Film that’s Special to My Little Heart

It is said that once in our life, there are things that will really touch and influence us in the way that we never imagined. It may be in the form of books, event and even movies. I am not a movie enthusiast but everything had changed when I saw the Indian movie entitled, “Like Stars on Earth, Every Child is Special”. This movie is all about a young boy named Ishaan Avasthi. He was an eight-year-old boy who dedicates more time to dreaming up wondrous worlds of animals and kites than he does to finishing up his schoolwork. He always failed in all his subjects and even complained that all he could see are the dancing letters and numbers. He can’t read or write well simple phrases and sentences. Everything ...view middle of the document...

He was so miserable and he even stopped painting. Later, newly arrived art teacher Ram Shankar Nikumbh arrived at Ishaan's boarding school looking to liven things up by getting his students to think outside the box. Not surprisingly, the vast majority of students respond to their free-thinking new teacher with great enthusiasm -- all except for Ishaan. When Ram noticed just how unhappy his most imaginative young student really was, he vowed to break through to Ishaan and unlock the promising young student's full potential. He found out that like him when he was young, Ishaan was also suffering dyslexia – a learning disability where a child can’t read or write because he/she can’t even the recognize letters. Ram Shankar Nikumbh did his best to teach Ishaan in an effective imaginative way. Few months passed of doing such great effort everyone was surprised, Ishaan Avashti was actually a truly exemplary genius and precious child.

As I mentioned in the beginning, this movie touched my life and all of us at home. This taught me that no matter how hard for us to see things in the way that reveal valuable essence in every person; it is proven that every one of us has talent and abilities that make us unique. Through the movie, I begin to realize that I should consider my elder brother Argie, our Ishaan in the family, as a valuable gem in my family and definitely I will view him like how I admire the stars I see up in heavens above. I also hope that all harsh teachers in the world will be able to view this certain movie so they could be more effective in the field of teaching and understand us more – the learners.
