What is your better understanding on the terminology used on the PwD?"Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things, in which smile and kindness, and small obligations given habitually, are what preserve the heart and secure comfort. ~Humphry Davy~"
As the saying goes, I am writing on the terminology used on the Person with Disabilities (PwD) for a better understanding of the citizens referred to our India's dailies. It should be read as Person with Disabilities (PwD) and not Public Work Department (PWD). The international community has preferred the use of Persons with Disabilities (PwD). We know when a nation at war with other nation says, "we have disabled all the missile launchers of our enemies". If the seventh sisters state especially the state Nagaland allows 29,000 citizens to remain disabled with a loss of work force, dignity, and headcounts from the small population? Moreover, the Indian Government has also rightly used this term "Person with Disabilities" in both the acts related to this group of citizens, 1995 and 2016.
I write this for general awareness of our people Indians those who are hailing from the seven sisters states in Northeast as this concern about the PwD in our society is emerging only recently. Use of the term "Person with Disabilities" implies the persons in question are persons living with some disabilities who can be potential, resourceful, if only the society engages them.
