In both cases, I asked the person who was going to be at the studio whether the studio was wheelchair accessible and free of the omnipresent steps that are the bane of wheelchair users. In both cases, I was told there was a small step, but that I would be given all necessary help. And in both cases, there was more than just `a small step', and a bit of walking on one's own feet, which is doable for me but NOT for many wheelchair-using friends of mine. When will people understand what accessibility means for a person with locomotor problems? If the above instances keep repeating even when the event in question is being organised to improve inclusion and sensitise people on matters of concern for PwD, is there any hope for the much touted `Accessible India Campaign' ever taking off the ground?
If we repeatedly score `same-side goals' before the game even starts, how can we ever hope to win?
