Mumbai: Hearing impaired persons protest for education, jobs

Mumbai: Over 150 hearing impaired persons protested outside the National Institute for the Hearing Handicapped (NIHH), Bandra demanding courses to be designed keeping them in mind and for efforts for their employment.
They said that the courses were neither vocational in nature nor were they taught in sign language. “The courses are such that the hearing impaired cannot enroll for them, then what is the point?” asked Punit Gustav who advocates for Indian Deaf Society.
