People with disabilities are often alienated in society. Given the shortcomings in their life, they are not provided equal opportunities in any sphere. The inequality doesn’t stop at that. They are seen with condescending eyes and are ill-treated too. The observance of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities comes as a timely reminder of how one should live in harmony and together with people who have disabilities. It tells us how we not only help them but also treat them one amongst us. #DisabledPeopleAreHot Trends on Social Media With Differently-abled People Sharing Their Sexiest Pictures.
