Causes of depression in disabled children’s lives
There is a vast difference between enrolled and absentee children from schools. Certain factors have caused this situation. Though Braille lectures have been arranged for blind children what about other children? In the days of the corona where a normal person is losing his brain due to isolation and stress of disease, there are kids also ranging from different ages that are physically, psychologically or mentally compromised.
Those children who found it solacing to live in a community of their own are in hurdles to make their way to recreations. Sitting in their homes alone and helplessly watching normal children moving freely on their own to markets, playgrounds though in a meagre number yet they feel genuinely different from these children. These super kids who may be having more abilities, intelligence and skills simultaneously are now prone to take pity over themselves.
Their aunts and uncles are not used to bear them a lot for hours. Increasing psychological burden and their physical and mental disabilities are costing a lot to them. They feel that life has stopped. It can only lead to a final blow or the last day of this life.

Children’s favourite food and desserts are arranged to feed them. They are multi-talented; do not lack anything except free mobility in a disabling society. With high morale and mettle never compromised these special children fighting with all social barriers.
Steps to be taken by the incumbent government
Present government needs to announce some mobile health care system for these special children separately. There should be entertainment and education programs for these children. On a national level, a number of programs have been on aired for the child population of the country but these ‘children’ are still looking forward to the privileges that a normal child is availing himself through national discourse.
Shortage of facilities and low supporting packages from the government is raising the concerns of civil society. Deaf, dumb, abnormal limbs, slow learners, psychologically pressurized a unit of population is left deprived. Their innocent face and void eyes are raising questions about their future. They are enthusiastic, energetic and full of vision. Low teacher to student ratio, non-co-operative behaviour of the localities and rented buildings are adding troubles for them.
