deaf alphabet…

This is Ravi, he is an ex-orphanage kid. Many years ago he ran away from Delhi, jumped on a train and ended up on the streets of Vijayawada. He was eventually picked up on the train station where  he was living rough by the orphanage and has been with them ever since. He has been teaching me to sign as he is one of the most sociable people i have ever met and also he is deaf. If you want to learn the alphabet you can follow him signing below. It is the English version as taught in the deaf schools here in India.

I am struggling to learn some Telugu (the main language of Andhra Pradesh) so i was not keen to start learning another language…but Ravi kind of pushed me into it and in doing so has done me a huge favour as i have found it incredibly useful so far.
