People living with disabilities are often subject to a variety of dismissive responses and condescending attitudes by our society. They are often taken as an object of pity and loathing. People profess to feel uncomfortable around them, resulting in their ostracisation from a regular and respectful standing in society.
This widespread conduct of a dismissive mentality is catalysed by declining awareness around the issues and challenges faced by people living with a disability. Such rifts in our society can only be bridged by activities that bring the polarity of opinions together. Encouraging people to interact with others by inclusive strategies and engaging activities like sports, competitions, fairs, and other social gathering endeavours helps induce favourable exposure. Paralympics is a shining example of the same.
