Entertainment: Disability is not a barrier.
Published on: 06 May, 2021
People with disabilities have been struggling to find adequate job opportunities even before the pandemic began, with their battle being worse today. Their plight is truly heartbreaking.
They don’t ask for pity or sympathy. They demand a chance, an opportunity to prove their talents and their abilities. They want employers to judge them on the basis of what they are capable of doing and achieving.
