There can be times when an unfortunate incident or accident can render a person immobile, even for life. It can lead to the person losing his or her job or severely restrict his or her ability to earn a livelihood. Besides, disability can strike a severe blow to the confidence of a person almost altering his viewpoint about life. Does this mean physically disabled people should give up on life and get into a vortex of negativity and depression? The answer is NO and NEVER!
In today’s day and age, disability need not be a barrier to realize one’s dreams as exemplified by scores of achievers worldwide. The example of brave heart Arunima Sinha, the Indian volleyball player who became the first female amputee to climb Mount Everest and Mount Vincent is an exemplary testament of grit, determination, and persistence. Furthermore, in addition to courage and determination, it is the recent developments in prosthetics that have brought a new ray of hope for people suffering from physical disabilities.
