Disability as a Human Right Issue: India's Invisible minority in the Realm
Dr.Ramesh R
The world Report on Disability published by the world Health Organization (WHO) and the World Bank says that 15 percent of the world's population or 1 billion people live with a disability. If we go by the 15 percent figure, India should be home to more than 150 million people with disabilities! Even if we take a conservative 7-10 percent, India is home to at least 70-100 million people with disabilities. This is a huge a section of our population. And yet, we hardly see them in the mainstream. But this doesn't mean that these millions are not there, among us. It is just that we as a country have neglected to include them in the mainstream.
