Passage No. – 1
Disability refers to any kind of physical or mental incapacity that limits a person‟s ability to work. Yet it is seldom that we have thanked God for the gift of Good health and well being. The smallest actions like seeing the sunrise, brushing our teeth, popping peanuts into your mouth come so naturally and effortlessly, and Yet we are never satisfied, always discontented. It is not so for the disabled. For them it requires immense concentration, effort, will power, energy and a lot of time. Despite this, it could be a long way of perfection. It takes great courage and determination to cope with disability. We can make life easier for them by becoming more sensitive to their handicap, their needs and their problems. Feeling of pity or under sympathy will only shake their confidence. Give them encouragement, facilities and resources, and then watch them as they learn, earn, play, work and even start their families.
