Are we doing enough for the mentally retarded?There are some special homes for the mentally retarded. They seem to have good skills and they are trained in those specific skills.
Yet, we find so many on the roads and they are a world unto themselves. They talk to themselves, sometimes show all sorts of gestures at normal people or mouth dialogues of some famous Tamil movies or Hindi movies and so on. They can be seen everywhere.
There are several voluntary associations taking care of such people. Yet, when we inform the police, in many cases, they disappear for some time and are seen back in the same place, after just ten days. One really wonders why this happens.
What can be done to rectify this situation, at least to some extent?
