She doesn’t speak. She’s five years old but she doesn’t speak. Born in a poor village, she lives with seven siblings, she has never spoken. She listens, she looks, she points and claps-but she doesn’t speak. She doesn’t even try to speak. Sometimes when her family doesn’t respond to her signals, or doesn’t pay attention to her, she produces one word with full stress so that it sounds as if she’s singing it; “Ammmaaa!”. That is the only word she has ever spoken. And the irony is, she doesn’t have a mother.
