The coined-word, Persons-With-Disabilities (PWD), refers to the persons with a permanent illness, incapacity or, injury that makes it a constraint for them to apply that part of their body wholly and freely. If somebody's ability to speak, hear or, see is damaged before (Born Disablement) or, after the birth (Disablement After Birth)- such persons are called speech, visually or, hearing Impaired. Life of such a person is not so simple, it is rather, very tough and challenging. When I see a psychologically sound and stout PWD, passing a smile, on their sullen silent face, I see GOD in his/her appearance. Around 2.68 crore PWDs in India (2.14% of India's total population of 1.25 billion), gaze at us with greater expectations for their welfare in the fields of Sports & Skill, Education & Employment, etc. Numerous National, International, Governmental and Non-Governmental Organizations have been doing a lot more, still it is just like a few drops of water on a hot-plate. There is a lot more to be done in this direction. However, we should not see only one's Disability, we must see one's ability and capability to do, for one's betterment as well as for the Humanity as a whole.
