Kunika Pandey writes about the disability care and Indian infrastructure highlighting the sufferings and social setbacks of the disabled.
Disability, a multifaceted term, is defined by WHO as an umbrella term covering impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions. The disabled suffer various kinds of social, economic and political setbacks in the society. This section of the society depends on others due to the difference in their physical or mental status. There have been various initiatives by the government through legislations to remove all discrimination against them by identifying and promoting their rights. In order to have an equitable society there is a dire need to protect and promote the basic requirements of this deprived section of society as well. The areas to be focused upon to this effect are health, education, livelihood, social empowerment. This article aims to determine the effectiveness of the infrastructure of our country in the process of identification and promotion of the rights of the differently abled section of the society.
