Amendments to Disability Act 1995, if at all, will certainly not make it to the upcoming Budget session. That's a relief. Can focus (more) on 2 other crucial targets: Union Budget 2010 & Amendments to Copyright Act. Has huge implications for print impaired people. Would you believe it that out of 1 lakh books published in India every year, barely 500 are available to our blind friends in 'alternative formats'??

Isn't that a NATIONAL SHAME??? And when this was brought to the notice of our HRD Minister, Kapil Sibal recently at the inaugural of the Book Fair, he said, "I have already done enough for the disabled"!!!
