MUMBAI: CNN-IBN, in association with Thums Up, Being Human and American India Foundation (AIF), has started VEER, a special initiative that aims to highlight the struggles of people with disability (PwDs) in India and raise funds to make them employable. In the third episode, we take up the critical aspects of inclusion and accessibility for the PwDs. On the show, the panellists discuss the urgent need to create barrier-free environments so that PwDs can lead their day-to-day lives with dignity. The panellists also stress upon the need for addressing social indifference and changing people’s mindsets towards PwDs. The expert panel includes: Jayna Kothari, Founder Member, Centre for Law and Policy Research; Maj (retd) Devender Pal Singh, who lost his leg during Kargil War; Dr Shweta of Aanchal Charitable Trust; and Poonam Natrajan, Chairperson, National Trust.
