HYDERABAD: While the panelists at the release of the report, India: Social Development Report 2016, Disability Rights Perspectives were addressing the audience, one person on the panel was taking the help of an interpreter.
TKM Sandeep, president of Deaf Enabled Foundation, was seated beside his interpreter Ramya Miryala, the vice-president of the organisation. “This is a necessity. It is not help, it is a way of life. No one recognises the need of an interpreter for a deaf and mute person. It is a profession. But there are hardly any in Telangana and even the country,” said Sandeep when he addressed the gathering.
