The article given below was taken from a national daily in India.
The article clearly shows how difficult it is for the differently abled children to obtain an education. The cost for educating differently abled children is so high that many often end up in dark cells without any training or care. The article also raises serious doubts about the treatment of these children by the successive state and central governments. The constitution of our republic bestows equal rights to all citizens irrespective of their caste, creed, religion and ethnicity. The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act or Right to Education Act (RTE) enacted by the Government of India on 4th August 2009 grants the right of education to all the children in our country. But sadly, a section of the society is still lacking these fundamental rights. They are no less citizens than any other person in the republic. But their rights are ignored and brush aside by the same society responsible for protecting them.
