नितळ अनुभव

- An article Published in Chaturang (Loksatta): Saturday, February 23, 2013.
By Dr. Maya Tulpule
"सत्तराव्या वर्षी कोड आलं ते तेवढं बरं करून द्या, मला मरताना कोड नको आहे", असं म्हणणारे आजोबा भेटतात, तेव्हा अगतिक झाल्यासारखं वाटतं. कोडाला अजूनही १०० टक्के उपचार उपलब्ध नाहीत. त्यासाठी खूप काम करणे गरजेचे आहे.
सांगताहेत गेली बारा वर्षे कोडा विषय़ीची नकारात्मक मानसिकता बदलण्यासाठी श्वेता हा स्वमदत गट स्थापन करणाऱ्या तसेच नितळ चित्रपटाची निर्मिती करणाऱ्या डॉ. माया तुळपुळे.
