Calling People With Disabilities ‘Divyangjan' Is A Cruel

Calling People With Disabilities ‘Divyangjan' Is A Cruel Joke

The disabled community doesn't like adjectives such as special people, persons with special needs, differently-abled or for that matter <em>divyangjan</em> (divine bodied) being used in reference to them. They want access to education, employment and economic viability. Let's work towards changing mindsets, not names.
