It is very convenient to call people with a disability as specially abled people but does we really treat them like that? NO. Until we have not experienced the pain and sufferings what other person is going through we cannot empathise with them. To aware, the students about the difference between sympathy and empathy Equal Opportunity Cell of The IIS University in collaboration with Jaipur-based Non-Governmental Organization Umang organised Disability Sensitization Programme on Tuesday.

To let students feel the pain and sufferings of people with disability, some students were made to sit on the wheelchairs. Some students’ knees were tied while others were blindfolded. These students were escorted by their peers and allowed to move around the campus. They experienced the problems that students with a disability have been facing each day.

Radhika, a student escorting her friend on a wheelchair, shared her experience said that disability is not as big a problem for people with disabilities as it is the mindset and behaviour of other people towards them is.

Blindfolded Rakshita had another experience to share with us. According to her, when a normal student enters the school or college, she makes friends of her choice but this option doesn’t withhold with the student having a disability because she could make friends only with those who have landed their support to her.

However, this program helped students to understand that they should not sympathise with the people who are disabled but they need to spend time with them and treat them as equal. It is high time to change the mentality towards such people so that we can help them in a better way.
