Need Of Helping Hands For The Differently Able People

May 09, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 150

'Disability is a complex phenomenon reflecting an interaction between features of a person's body and features of the society in which he or she lives' is the definition of disability given by W.H.O.

Impairment in hearing, vision, vocal, movement, etc. comes under the physical disability whereas mental retardation comes under intellectual disability. People having such disabilities are known to be the 'Differently able people' these days replacing the old and embarrassing term 'Disabled people'.

Different accidents, hereditary influences and long term stress come under the leading causes of disability, resulting the difficulties in hearing, walking, talking, logical manipulations of mind, humiliation, lack of means for livelihood, etc.

The differently able people are going through the same phase in most of the countries, particularly in the developing countries, as alternatives for each of the difficulties they are facing, are yet to be found.

In spite of the difficulties, some differently able people have been shining, making the pride of the country high. Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell in spite of being suffered from learning disability initially, later on shone in the world, and are still glittering as the legends in the field of their inventions and theories.

Helen Keller, being herself blind, deaf, and mute, devoted her life to people with disabilities.

Stephen Hawkings, the world famous physicist and mathematician, is an epitome. Though he is now nearly paralyzed, he is teaching through a computer supported a machine by which his words are compiled.

Jhamak Ghimire of Nepal is another leading example in the world. Despite of being suffering from cerebral palsy, she has done a lot in the Nepali literature, receiving prestigious Madan Puraskar as an accolade.

Meena Paudel is the other name which is not to be forgotten. Being herself a differently able person, she has been working as a project manager of Nepal Disabled Woman's Association, which promotes the rights of women with disabilities, for which she has recently been awarded as the winner of Aosta's (Italy) "Women of the Year".

But this is not enough. Out of many people with disabilities, only few are believed to be able to get the exposure and success due to the love, support and caring from the other people. Others are still backward and are living a miserable life, which is a pathetic fact. Helping hands are still not being extended towards them, resulting the lowering of the confidence level of those differently able people. They are with the desire of doing something good in future but are lagging behind because of no support. They want to make the country's name high but are being pulled downward from the country's people itself.

This is not done. Those people have equal freedom and rights as we are enjoying ours. They should be taken care of and be encouraged so that they can go beyond their potentialities resulting fruitful aftermaths, which is again for the country itself.

Many paths can be followed to help those differently able people. Boosting their self confidence is one. Helping in their daily living by providing different education and trainings is the other. Not only that, motivating them and helping them to enhance their self esteem is the next. Raising funds for providing the physically challenged people with artificial hands, legs, and wheel chairs is on the top of everything else as much more differently able people are seen incapable of affording those materials.

I feel that we have not been able to assist those people effectively. 'Differently able people are the gifts to the society' should be our motto in order to help them in the best possible way one can. It is our duty to take care of the physically and mentally challenged people. 'Humanity still exists' should be kept in our mind in helping those people.

So I strongly believe that we 'capable person' should move one step ahead and offer our helping hands to the differently able people so that we could get a reason to smile in the future by seeing their achievements, developed life style and with a self-satisfaction that "Yes, I have done something for the sake of differently able people".
