World Disability day
We observed World Disability Day today in Vikasnagar. Many children, their care takers, social workers and others participated in the rally. Is stammering a disability? Tough question. But there are many who would respond in affirmative. The state may not do so, because that would have financial and constitutional implications. But people, whose life has been affected by this so called 'little speech impediment' know what it means carry the burden all their lives.
Anyway, we are happy that we went and walked in solidarity with children and adults facing various issues and difficulties in life. We told people who were interested, what stammering is and distributed some copies of "12 questions on stammering".
