The invisible 83 million

Ananth Krishnan’s article “The invisible 83 million”, appeared in THE HINDU, 26 October 2008, is a wonderful attempt to pull the society for its failure to become sensitive towards persons with disabilities. The author has nicely presented the story of Gao Yu Li of China who had only child with Cerebral Palsy. Shortly after the child was born, her husband left her. She did not bow down to the circumstances. On the other hand, she put a tuff fight against all the odds. The most important message Gao has given to all of us “Take your kids out to the park, to the shops, wherever you can, and however difficult it might be, because that is the only way people will ever become used to us”.
