It felt good to read the article “Mind this gap” (Feb.21). Society is insensitive towards the disabled in India and it is high time we evolved. I urge The Hindu to highlight the plight of the disabled in India due to the absence of ramps in most buildings and subways. To alight from a train is impossible and can hurt the self-respect of a handicapped person. As a society we need to be more inclusive rather than being insensitive.
