It was a moment of national pride when the Physically Disabled Indian Cricket team won the Singapore tour this year. The team showed great strength, determination, and commitment. Yet on the other hand the society holds stereotypes against disabilities and they continue to be disrespected as if don not exist.
According to the 2011 census, more than 26,810,557 men and women are disabled. In both urban and rural India the male ratio is much above than female. Rural India Data indicates that the male ratio of disabled is around more than ten crores, the female ratio is more than eight crores. In urban India male disabled population is approximately 4 crores, and female is more than three crores.
