We have seen west being more sensitive towards people with physical disabilities. They have major facilities like special walking trails and wheelchair supporters in all public places, educational institutions and offices. It makes a lot of difference for these people, which makes their day to day chores a lot easier. We have seen people with physical disabilities competing in different sports too. But now they are even seen walking the ramp for prestigious fashion shows. A good gesture and initiative by some designers in the fashion industry from around the world, have resulted in bringing a good change. Hope to see this happening everywhere soon….
