Social Exclusion of Disabled Persons in India and their Attitude Towards Society - A study of locomotor disables of Pondicherry


Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2011 in the subject Social Pedagogy / Social Work, grade: A-, , course: M.PHIL, language: English, abstract: Different people look on the subject disability in many ways. The Person with Disability (PWD) are consider as an object of pity, sympathy, isolated or rejected in the family and in society on large. People maintain a social distance and treat disables as outsiders. The development of disabled individuals depends on their personality and the way society treats and motivates them. This will be determined by the attitude towards his/her own disability, towards other disabled people and other members of the society as well as the attitude of the society towards him/her. Here the researchers going to discuss what is disability, attitude, and social exclusion level they face. Locomotor disabled are facing a lot of problems in our society. They face problems in their social, economic, and marital life. In this society of majority there is no scope for the excluded or the one who are unable to do the expected roles because of their inability. Though government has made some special provisions in the form of reservation and welfare programs for the upliftment of these people, still the condition of these people is no way better; they have to do a lot of struggle for mere survival. In this study an attempt has been made to know the hardships of the locomotor disabled people in the society, and the challenges they are facing in their day to day life. Few studies have been conducted regarding the problems of locomotor disabled persons, but there is no such study done by any academician or any NGO which assess the attitude of these persons towards society and vice verse. In this direction it will be a path breaking research which will help us to measure intensity of the pain, helplessness and exclusion in their social life.
