Anchita Saxena, Amity Law School, Noida
In the milieu of absolute innovations and rampant scientific development, there are reparations in the existing societal structure, and efforts are being made towards culminating a more woke and inclusive society in entirety. However, an area where all these efforts are eclipsed and an exercise that perpetuates a state of ostracism is extolled, successively suffuses an ableist society, which keeps the concept of disability inclusion at bay. The cost of this exclusion can not only be witnessed in the deteriorated state of sustenance of the disabled persons all around the world but also evinces a morose situation of how the society responds to disability in general. Having said that, persons suffering from disabilities are often denied equal opportunities to employment, because of which they are forced to reside in a perpetual state of squalor. International labour organization, a stalwart institution assuring human and labour rights to the workers all around the world, delineates a grim report that exclaims that nearly 80 percent of the disabled persons are deprived of equal opportunities for work. These social inequalities, inadvertently, impinges upon the fundamental framework ensuring the right to live with dignity and right to decent work for persons suffering with disability. In the context of India, the nation has a long way to go to comport with the practice of disability inclusion. As a panacea, approaches related to Community based rehabilitation is meteoric to placate these searing problems. A community engaged with promulgating the rights of disabled persons, is an exemplary method to curtail the social diabolic and institutionalizes an ideological progression, which in a way helps persons with disabilities lead a life with dignity and social security.
