Alokita Jigisha is sharing her thoughts on society’s misplaced tendency to brand people with disabilities as either helpless or heroic.
The right to be an ordinary person is one of the most basic right that persons with disability need. But terms like Divyang Jan robs us of the status of being human. To begin with everybody is an ordinary person. Achievements may or may not come later. Irrespective of their achievements, everybody should be given respect and love.
