[AI] behaviour of my superior

Stefen Hawkins better pass his days confined  in his home, no?
Why waste time for a cripple and a dumb?

Remember, mahesh is not asking for any special guide.\
Only his team members have to escort him a bit.
Stringent laws are the need of the hour.
no education or counseling does any good.
Coercion is many a times sole basis for morality.
That's why whole gamut of godliy heaven and hell  and that's why whole gammut of rule of law.
As my psychology teacher remarked once in exasperation at my repeated query about potential of cognitive behavioural approach in changing response to disability:
"Mr. Asudani, chastize them with direct verbal onslaught, and the whole attitude would change".

According to you, helping somebody is a waste of time? Suppose there is a
poor man who has a very good ability of doing business. To start with, he
needs only RS 100 which he doesn't have. Now as far as you or people like
you, will not concede him that  amount because your logic is, why should you
waste your hard-earned money on him.
This gentleman from Pune, only needs somebody to guide him to move around.In
the conference he can exhibit his technical expertise thereby making the
name of his company.
 But he can not do this, as long as there are people like his boss and
people like you, who think that if he is not independent in moving about,
his being a expert technician is useless. Mahesh is only blind but, suppose,
there is some scientist of a very high stature, but he has lost his both
legs. As per your view, he must never be allowed to attend any seminars or
conferences because he would need somebody to push his wheelchair around.
Why should you waste your precious time for him? --- Original Message -----
