Did you find?

People are talking about the rights right but who is following ?. is there any one following the letters saying “RIGHTS” . These rights are limited for the papers and pen. Govt every year bringing a new law to protect the “HUMAN RIGHTS”.  If Govt says HR for everyone I thought it is also for the people with disability. But I haven’t seen those rights are applying for people with disability. To make sure these rights need to be reach for people with disability NCRPD has born even though Disable Officers acting like they haven’t known their job yet.

I experienced the HUMAN RIGHTS for people with disabilities are should be waiting for an hour to get help for getting in to the Bus of Train.

My journey is UN forgettable

Nagaraja P

I born on 25 – 06 – 1986 in a small town called Chinthamani, Kolar District now it is Chikkaballapura District. With my family i enjoyed my childhood, I have three brothers and two sister all of them elder than me. My mother and father always encouraged me in my studies to lead my life without dependence. Brother Krishna is supported me in money for my education he is illiterate, but he knows the value of education, he haven’t seen school in his life but he always encouraged me to study. And he expected returns from me nothing.  My sister Rajeshwari,  she is like Mother for me what ever job I am doing now it is just because of her, she use to carry me for the school and while coming back she use to brings me along with her to home.

Whatever knowledge I have now it is just because of her support and love and affection. I thank god for giving me such a wonderful sister in my life, I have seen the people who disrespect their brothers and sisters, I have seen the people who wont respect elders, when it comes to me I am luckiest person.

With my sister help I completed my 4th standard, it is the time to join Middle school I need some one help to travel to school, off course I have my sister to help, but I thought I cant put any pressure on her any more I decided to take three wheel Cycle for my mobility, after six months I got cycle from the government. My sister got some rest for herself. And she can move without any responsible with her friends anywhere she likes. Finally she got independence from me.

There I started my own journey without dependence on others. It made me happy and my family especially for my mother, in the school I am the last in lesions but I am good in art, making dolls, sketching, and making noise in the class, yes I am last but except Science. In Science always I am the first.

I finished my middle school with out any fail and i joined to the The Governmet High School In chinthamani on 1999.

When I joined high school that is the first time I face the problem with my classmates. Discriminating towards people with disability, then I realized the truth I am physically unable to do specific work which need the physical efforts. I haven’t seen in my life the pain I gone through that situation. I cursed the god for giving me this situation in my life. There I felt I am alone in this world. Some how I thought I should be something in the world.

Yes My journey is UN forgettable.

My friends use to play the Cricket, Football and other games, when they playing I use to sit one corner of the ground and watch them, yes it is unforgettable situations, I have no words to explain the pain I have gone through. This pain indirectly affected my studies I am not able concentrate on anything except the drawing the pictures. And some times sitting alone and talking to the stones, hills, tress, and my favorite god Lord Shiva’s Statue. Some how I manage to pass my S.S.L.C examination in 2002.

I joined for the college in 2002 for P.C.M.B. I passed the first year examination with lowest marks. In second year I am not able to do the Chemistry Practicles because I can’t do jobs with chemicals that is just because of my disability. It is too late for understand these issues. i failed in chemistry there I felt again I am disable.

I left my studies and started to teach for small children in my home I use to get Rs. 500 per month. No satisfaction with my work. But there is no ways I should earn and get some money and continue my studies. One day I am reading the paper I saw the add APD its non government organization which gives computer training for people with disabilities but it is in Bangalore. I took my sister Rajeshwari help and took bus to Bangalore on January 14th 2005. And  i got shock coming from far I thought waste time and money because they said to pay for the course. I have to  pay Rs.8, 000.00 for the one year course. When I requested them they gave concession for Rs.4, 500.00 even though I can’t pay that much amount.  For that I agreed.

Course conducted 15th January 2005 onwards “The Advanced Diploma in Computer Application” I got part time job in a small STD booth from 5 PM to 10 PM at the evening time work for part time, the good words I heard when I am in half way of my certificate course, my course coordinator said she is going elect me after the course me as “Graphic Designing Faculty” That is the happiest day in my life which I cant forget.

I got certificate on 19th January 2006. That next day itself I joined for my work 20th January 2006 is the first day as employee in APD. I thought I am the happiest person in my life and I took decision I should stay few days here and help like me others who needed the future. And improved what ever way I wanted to live in this world, I am doing work now in APD from Three years, and this time to go to next level, but I am not living the organization. Now I wanted to do Animation Course it will cost Rs:1,00,000  for do the course

Thanking You


What is disability and who is disabled ?

December 31, 2008

What is disability and who is disabled ?

Based on research, around one in five people of working age are considered by the Government and by the DRC to be “disabled”.

What that means is that they have a disability or a long-term health condition that has an impact on their day to day lives. People in these circumstances and some others (such as people with a facial disfigurement) are likely to have rights under the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).

It is important that people have rights – people with cancer, diabetes, multiple sclerosis and heart conditions; people who have a hearing or sight impairment or a significant mobility difficulty, caused for example by arthritis, can be treated unfairly. The same is true of people who have mental health conditions or learning difficulties.

People need protection against being treated unfairly. While they might be considered “disabled” according to the Disability Discrimination Act, they don’t need to use that term about themselves – and very many people with rights under the DDA don’t.

Many people think that you can tell if someone is disabled and that people are usually disabled from childhood. In fact, most people who have a disability or a health condition develop it in later life – only 17 per cent are born with a particular condition.

And while Britain is getting wealthier and medicine is developing, in fact an increasing proportion of the population have some form of health condition or disability, partly because many of us are living longer and because treatments are improving. People are able to live for a long time, after cancer, after a heart attack, after an accident – a cause for celebration.

The DDA provides disabled people with rights and it also places duties on employers. More importantly, it helps encourage employers and employees to work together to break away from rigid employment practices, identify what adjustments and support might be needed, and find flexible ways of working that may benefit the whole workforce.

Are you disabled as defined by the DDA?

If you are “disabled” under the terms of the DDA, then this will help you to negotiate for reasonable adjustments in the workplace and give you legal protection if you feel you have been treated unfairly by an employer. There is further information on this in the legal section – ‘About your rights’.

Am I disabled?

A recent survey showed that 52 per cent of people who qualified as “disabled” under the DDA and had rights not to be treated unfairly because of their disability or health condition did not consider themselves disabled.

People are affected by disability or health conditions in different ways. This can happen suddenly, as a result of accidents or strokes for example, or gradually as a result of conditions such as arthritis and multiple sclerosis. Some people are affected for some but not all of the time by their condition, for example people with manic depression. There is often no defining moment when a health issue becomes a disability, at least for the individual concerned.

When does a person become disabled?

This often depends on who is asking and the purpose of the question. Some people are classified as “disabled” for one purpose but not for another. The definition of disability or incapacity in terms of access to benefits is different to that for a free bus pass from your local council.

Should I declare my disability?

Declaring a disability can sometimes be difficult for many different reasons:

  • you feel you will not get a job if you say you have a disability
  • no one can see the condition that affects you and you feel embarrassed about bringing it up
  • you may be worried about how your employer will respond, particularly if they have not been sympathetic to someone else in a similar situation
  • you may not like asking for help because you feel you can manage or because you don’t want a fuss
  • you think your manager will tell you to get on with it or tell you “everyone has difficulties and they cope”
  • you are afraid you might lose your job because your boss will see you as “less able”

All of these and many more are real fears – you know your situation better than anyone else and you also know your employer. However, statistics show that one in four people either has a disability or health condition or is close to someone who does.
