The Tribune; 25 July 2011
Ludhiana, July 24:  Bindu, a 15-year-old girl, doesn't go to school. She got deprived of a leg when a car ran over her at the age of four. She has since been having private tuitions at home, but never had the courage to go to a school. There seems to be a new hope in her life as she is back on her "two feet" after getting an artificial lower limb at the free artificial limb distribution camp at Viklang Sahayta Kender at Rishi Nagar here today.

"I hope now she’ll be able to go to the school", her mother sighed.

Like her, more than 52 persons received free artificial limbs and hearing aids at the camp organised by Bharat Vikas Parishad (BVP). Many patients were operated for polio disability at the camp.

Four-year-old Ankita Anand was not able to straighten her feet because of cerebral palsy. With the calipers, her father hopes for a good future for her daughter.

"Many persons are not aware that artificial limbs are being given away for free at the centre. Lacking expenses, they keep living a life of struggle," said RP Gupta, secretary, BVP.

Addressing a group of people with disabilities, Neelam Gupta, district president for the organisation, said they shouldn't consider themselves inferior. She advised them to get educated and learn vocational skills.
