How many disabled people do you see when you walk towards your home from the bus stand? How do you think they make a living with the kind of limitations they live with? While there are many to talk about women’s rights and children’s rights, there are hardly few who talk about the welfare of differently-abled citizens in our country.
Specially-abled people from low income or no income groups in our country have no option but to beg at some of the busy spots in our cities. There are a few who think about their needs and well-being while, others lend them a blind eye.
Fast walking day-to-day commuters walk passed them. Some ignore them and some try to help them by buying what little they have to offer. Rohit Nair, a daily commuter at the Goregaon Railway Station had seen Dilip Jain, a cripple who could hardly speak trying to make his ends meet by selling a few everyday items that he carried in a briefcase.
If you know a hero who inspires you everyday, do share their story with us and we will be happy to spread a word about them.
