Disabled people are large minority groups who face many problems in some way or the other, which leads to social isolation. Disability includes blindness, low vision, hearing impairment, mental retardation, and mental illness. They face many challenges and discrimination in their day-to-day lives which keeps them away from going to public places and getting those rights which, a non-disabled person gets. They are also deprived of education and employment.

But with the changing times, there are some initiatives which are been taken to help these differently-abled people and make their daily living tasks easier. For example, the Braille system has been introduced in many public facilities such as public telephones to help the visually-challenged people, ISL (Indian Sign Language) is used to help people with hearing impairment, and many more such arrangement have been made for differently-abled people. Special Education system is also been followed to help such children, it has a unique curriculum and the teachers teaching them are trained in such a manner that they handle and support them with a lot of care.

It is well said by Stephen Hawking, “Disability need not be an obstacle to success.”. Instead, can be a boon to reach new heights.

Since they were disabled, their brains compensated them with a gift of their talent. Some Famous faces who excelled in their lives despite their disabilities are Sudha Chandran who is an Indian actress, and a classical dancer lost her one leg in an accident. In spite of that, she performed Bharatanatyam internationally and received many awards for her amazing talent.

Ravindra Jain was born visually impaired. He started singing at a very young age and took his passion to a new height when he joined the Indian music industry. He became one of the most notable music directors of the 1970s.

Girish Sharma, a badminton player, has set an example by becoming a badminton champion after he lost his leg in a train accident when he was a kid.

And many more like Arunima Sinha, H Ramakrishnan, Preethi Srinivasan, Satyendra Singh, Ralph Braun, Helen Keller have proved that being disabled doesn’t close all the doors to success, but rather by overcoming your disabilities, one can shine bright in their respective chosen field.

Such great and respectable personalities are a source of inspiration and motivation to many. Though disabled people face a lot of discrimination, and are left out in many phases of life, still if they choose to be strong and fight against their challenges, they have the ability to do and perform better than the ones with all abilities.
