Ignoring handicap people

India
August 20, 2020 1:48am CST
In human society the handicapped and differently abled people are often ignored and not given the same respect as an abled person. They face difficulties in their everyday life while using public transport, public toilet, shopping and even public gatherings where no one bothers to give them a helping hand. this has to change and everyone needs to be respected regardless of their disability. Do you agree ? picture courtesy : Psycology today

In this country there are loads of stairs and not enough of those ramps to make it easier for them to get around the image says everything.

Yes most handicap people find it difficult to climb stairs at public places and using transport services. Ramp arrangements must be made.

@jayanth_77 What they ignore all those that build those places with so many stairs is that wheelchairs cannot climb up stairs so they place so many limitations on them.

Whenever I see any disabled person I always give them some money

Giving money to poor handicapped people is good way to help them. More than the money they want little help like crossing the road, climbing a staircase or picking up something on the floor. If we can help them with these little tasks then they would feel happy.

Especially in our country there is no consideration for them in public places.I saw in foreign countries they have ramps, lifts and many things keeping their needs in mind. Also there are cars and vehicles suited for them to stay independent and they get a separate paring lot so that they are close to entrances. We need to sensitize the society for them. We should create awareness for an inclusive society.

In India handicapped people have ramp facility in most railway stations and airports. They also have special concession while booking train tickets. Reservation on jobs . Toilets in most malls and public place are handicapp friendly but still they face problem while using transport and often need help. They also have to deal will some people who pass comments but these are far fewer due to public awareness programs.
