Specially abled girl gets to live a day as Ferozepur DC

It was a dream come true for Anmol Beri, a 15-year-old girl suffering from locomotor disorder, who was made honorary deputy commissioner of this border district for a day.

Immediately after taking the seat next to DC Chander Gaind at the mini secretariat, Anmol met various government officials and took up pertinent matters related to their departments with them. The girl who is just 2-ft tall due to her physical disability, exhibited great deal of confidence while enquiring about the ongoing works with officers who were in “quandary” while replying to her string of questions on public issues.

Anmol also gave suggestions to improve the working in government offices, which the DC immediately asked the officials concerned to implement. She even asked MLA Parminder Singh Pinki about his development plans for the constituency, to which the latter was struggling to reply.

Meanwhile, DC Gaind declared her the brand ambassador of the “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao” campaign in the district. MLA Pinki said he would take up the matter with the CM to make her the ambassador of the campaign for the entire state.

In the morning, the DC went to Anmol’s house and brought her in the official car. On her arrival at the DC office, she was presented with a bouquet and given a red-carpet welcome by all officials, NGOs and medipersons. After spending a few hours in the office, Anmol went to the Press Club where she, along with the MLA and the DC, handed over a cheque of Rs 5 lakh for the club. The “DC for a day” also visited the Civil Hospital where she was accorded the privilege to inaugurate the newly renovated Emergency Ward.

Talking to The Tribune, Anmol said her dream of becoming an IAS officer and heading the district as the DC was fulfilled. She thanked DC Gaind for the unique initiative to fulfil her dream.

Notably, Anmol has already undergone four surgeries in AIIMS, Delhi, and was born with a missing heel at a hospital in Amritsar. He mother Chetna Beri said Anmol was brilliant in studies but due to her physical disability, her peers used to mock at her. “However today, she has emerged stronger than before and this confidence will go a long way in achieving her desired goals in life.”

Recalling her meeting with Anmol, DC Gaind said a few days ago, he visited a local school for drug awareness campaign where he spotted her. “When I asked about her dreams, Anmol said she aspired to become an IAS officer,” the DC said, adding that he was dumbstruck to see her grid and determination. “Later, I thought of helping her live her dream for a day.”
