Meet Rupmani Chhetri, A Deaf Girl Who Proves That India Has A Long Way To Go For Equal Opportunities



A champion for the cause of people with physical disabilities, of women’s and children’s rights – Rupmani Chhetri is caught in the trap she has been fighting against. No one wants to give her a job.
Born deaf (speech and hearing impaired), Rupmani’s family came to India from Nepal when Rupmani was just six months old. Her parents were heartbroken at her condition and would try to help her in every way they could. With time, they seemed to start losing interest in her. After the birth of her younger siblings, born without physical disabilities, she was reduced to being a shadow about the house.
