Differently-abled, not disabled!

History has witnessed some of the most outstanding achievements by men and women in due course of time. However, the achievement is even more appreciated if has been addressed with an apparent physical disability. It takes courage for any ordinary man or woman to achieve a feat like success when he lacks at something; it simply requires a passion for a person with a disability to level the fame.

Among them is a woman named Zahra Yaqoob, who, despite her disability, has become an inspiration to anyone who believes that life with a disability is difficult.
