Dear Listers:

Greetings from the Eyeway Helpdesk!

Follow below the Daily Eyeway Alerts:

1. News-

Disability is a state of mind, as these great personalities have pointed
out. Life becomes dysfunctional only when we are paralysed by our lack of
will to perform, and disabled when we lose the determination to break the
shackles preventing us from achieving what we can. Here are several
differently-abled persons, who have proved that even when you don’t have
hands, legs or eyes, you can succeed in life. All you need is willpower and
determination to achieve heights that even able-bodied people would find
difficult to reach. Journalist by profession and activist at heart, Javed
Abidi has stood the test of time and emerged as a leader fighting for the
rights of the differently-abled. He was diagnosed with Spina Bifida, a
developmental congenital disorder caused by the incomplete closing of the
embryonic neural tube, that caused permanent nerve damage in the spine.

governments would be covered out of which 50 per cent would be made fully
