  3. The state of affairs of the disabled is so sad that we dont get even responses from ministries and department of social justice and other concerned people even after sending hundred of reminders and the govt claims to be giving several benefits. Can someone come and say anyone benefitted on these. It is all on papers. Even Maharashtra, we have sent several applications to various departments and the chief minister. While the CM office forwards the same to other departments, these departments sleep over it and do not even respond. It is because of our parents we are today what we are and government is not at all sympathetic towards the disabled nor do they want to hear the cries of the disabled. Politicians have time only to think how to get crores of money to their bank account and who will get more than the other. It is a total waste asking for any help from the Ministry here in our country.
