Guys I have written an article to support stammering as disability.These are my personal beliefs and and I used somewhere critic language.So ..please dont mind…Next time writing any post I will be more polite.
Pls give your valuable replies in Comment box.
better.This attempt is not for reservations but it is to demand some legislation to stop discrimination in different level. We should raise our voice infront of government to make some legislation and protocol to stop discrimination.
A person who has polio in his one leg has given reservation by government .Because He is not able to apply in Army like jobs or in those jobs in which it needs running or walking.If government would not give them reservation then he would be left behind from main stream and it will be violation of human rights too.Even He can do better in jobs like IT ,call center or banks etc still they get reservation.If we consider case of stutters, same conditions are applied to us too..even we get torcherd in so many ways by society that a person with disability other than stuttering wouldn’t.Our case is serious than that of the person affected by polio.
Before going to further in this article let us have a look on definition of Disability.
According to Wikipedia.
- a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. Speaking is one such major life activity. Others include seeing and hearing.
- a record of such an impairment. This applies more to individuals with a history of mental illness.
- is regarded as having such an impairment. This protects people who are not substantially limited in a major life activity but are perceived to have such a limitation. For example, you may be capable of communicating, but your employer thinks that you can’t communicate.
some other Acts in world that consider stuttering as Disability.
Great Britain’s Equality Act 2010,
Australian Disability Discrimination Act 1992 etc.
Story of a poor man.
A poor man in a village never applied for BPL (below poverty line) card because he do not want to be called as “poor”.He never applied for any government scheme for poor people because he thought that it’s better to live in crises than that of being assumed as poor.What do you want to say about that person??..different people can have different opinions about it..but thing is that He just pretended to be rich or contented even he was not.
Reply: Diversity does not affect someone’s life as stammering does.So we can’t consider it as diversity.If we talk about research of Mr Cristobal Loriente ,then I would like to say that There was no any need of such research in which after devoting so much time a researcher come to a point that ”Stammering means a speech which is not fluent”. Mr Cristobal had to come to any stutter he would have told him that ”Stammering means a speech which is not fluent” .He just given a different name to the stuttering i.e Transfluency.So all his efforts was for to give a different name to the stuttering.?? We are not looking for sympathy or Pity,We are discriminated in different ways in the society, We just need a tool to raise our voice against it.Accepting the truth and raising our voice against discrimination is not a step backward. If still someone consider it I would like to say..”Daag lagne se agar kuch achhcha hota hai to daag achhche hain.”
