This book vividly portraits the unequal treatment faced by persons with disabilities. In most countries and ages, the visually disabled have been considered with few outstanding exceptions, as objects of charity, of pity, of contempt, even of cruelty. They are subjected to this unequal treatment forgetting that they are also entitled to all rights and safeguards bestowed in the Constitution of India.
A comprehensive coverage of legislative and administrative measures for persons with disabilities emphasising need for inclusive education as enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is also covered in the light of visually disabled in Hubballi-Dharwad in the State of Karnataka.
The book will be helpful for academic community at large and for all those having a humanitarian approach in upholding the rights of persons with disability.
