this latest blow has been an absolute shocker for us. we, the JNU Visually
chalenged Forum has taken this issue with atmost seriousness, however, as
you all know, it is not just an issue with JNU. this statement of the JNU VC
is the beginning of the ringing of the death bell of whatever limited state
action for the disabled community in this country. please, it is time for
action!. these atempts at spreading disaster for us should be resisted with
all possible means!. I hope that access India becomes the platform for this
