  1. Over the years the disabled haven’t got enough opportunities in many walks of life. Media is one where their engagement is, even today, almost negligible. In India, portrayal of a disabled person, a few decades back was usually of a vicious character or using disability like dearness to create comic scenes or using disability to create awareness in the society to espouse charity. Things have changed but not much. The character of disabled is not played by a differently abled persons but by able bodied actors. I am not against them playing these characters. Do they carry the emotions and pains, aspirations and discrimination of a disabled in the right measures ? Isn’t it in a manner denial of opportunity to the disabled to realise their full potential? I thank axichat profusely for taking up relevant areas to enhance engagement the differently abled.

  2. Having enjoyed the paraolyimpics on tv, interviews and media coverage I believe the disabled question is not covering thecreal needs as achievements were celebrated to be atvthe highestvlevels. The issue is the simple things getting on every bus, entering a theatre or shops with facilities. This can stop the inclusion of every day life which is the facilitator for fullfilling ambitions.
