Why the RPWD matters to me
I, as a person with disability, want to live not merely exist. I know I can, I am able – I just need a strong legislation to protect me and to ensure that I’m able to live my dreams and to do the things that everyone else does.
I have no idea what the future holds and what the opportunities are going to be, but that’s exactly why the Bill must be passed.
I am part of the community and I have a right to everything the community has to offer. The RPWD says I am out there and I have the right – it forces my community, my state and my nation to be aware that I belong.
This is especially desperately needed in my home state Nagaland.This is why the RPWD Bill matters to me. I want to live, not merely exist!
