That also reflects our poor PR skills. Surely it is not enough to do
good work, we should learn to attract the media. This is positive
criticism, pl don't pelt me with mails folks.

Hardly there was any coverage of the issue.
Such is bound to be the fate of agitations in democracy by those who
don't have pressure enough.
However, there was some political support as well in the form of a
daughter of certain CM, so still no news!
some assurance, at least?
However, I am afraid that even in AI, many do not have direct sensory
perception of the issue concerned: namely the need for a general coach
for Disabled and its subsequent  conversion into an ambiguous
reserved-cum-general coach, greatly disadvantaging an ordinary disabled
traveler, its unauthorized occupation as a rule by  nondisabled
passengers, its location etc. etc.
I have little faith in human imagination unsupported by sensory data.
Compare the outcry generated by not allowing a blind traveler unescorted
on an aircraft and subsequent action, with that generated by irrational
changes in Disabled coach, or ouster of a blind traveler unescorted from
a train,  for that matter.
I am not directing my observations at particular persons, or undermining
the need for suitable actions, but highlighting impact of issues and
their direct relation to our sensory data only.

forgive if it appears cynical.....
