    someone is visually or hearing impaired it is even more difficult That is why in big metro areas like Delhi deaf blind networks do everything from getting children with disabilities into school to building awareness On World Disability Day today we salute organizations like these which are doing their best to break barriers It is easy to chat with Zahir on his laptop His software immediately translates the text from Braille to English and back to Braille and so liberates Zahir and so liberates Zahir from the conventional trappings that come with communicating in Sign Language I also do the same thing But to get this far on an individual level is one thing making it possible for others with the same disability is another For one deaf blindness is still not recognized as a separate disability under our Disability Act For another exposure to most to a sign language based on touch for instance or a school which caters to their needs is virtually non existent So Zahir is now working in an NGO that has set up a network for the deaf blind in Delhi and at the Blind School Association there is a separate class set up for deaf blind students Note from Day Some of the dialogue here was difficult for me to understand so the transcript my fade in and out My apologies then I decided to work for the blind people I was worried about the education family The association called Udon consists of parents students and professional advisors attached to NGOs that help with everything from getting disability certificates to advice on where to by special aids and most of all people who can count on each other on a bad day John has some residual vision so he was made the star of the one act play for Disability Day with a very simple story John needs a friend Off stage John s best friend is a deaf blind boy much younger than him who he is fiercely protective about Not in English Ardish playing a Japanese girl in the play has some residual hearing and when he is not mugging lines in Japanese he is playing football Not in English Kamlish and her husband Rakesh are both happy and relieved connect with Delhi s deaf blind association and to have found a school where their son Shiv can start picking up the necessary skills to communicate In fact they are so relieved that they will do anything to stay in Delhi even though Rakesh works in the Army s armoured corps Not in English It is not easy dealing with all the barriers the city and the world puts up around you if you re deaf blind but that only means the liberated voices amongst them like Zahir have their work cut out for them In the New Delhi Revdi Laul for NDTV admin March 6 2008 at 6 45 am If anyone has difficulty accessing the site video with a
