Cross out barriers for equal society

CHENNAI: A pleasant Sunday morning at Besant Nagar Beach usually throws up quite a few sights, with a lot of people turning up to enjoy the sun and the sands. But this Sunday, a group of people were huddled over a chalk-drawn crossword puzzle on the road.
Stuck in front of them on the promenade wall were several ‘clues’, to which they were trying to find the answers. ‘The study of hearing’ read one clue, as a participant scrawled ‘audiology’ in the correct boxes. Words like ‘accessibility’, ‘ramp’, ‘autism’, ‘prosthesis’ and ‘equal’ were also part of the crossword puzzle. If this doesn’t seem like your regular crossword, that’s because it’s a special one created to spread the idea of inclusion.
