An Indian Civilizational Perspective

I am Deaf, but not Dumb! – Daily fight of 18 mn deaf people in India that is mentally stone deaf

India has 18 million deaf people but only 250 practicing sign language interpreters!  There are no TTY (Text Telephone) in the country, of course no deaf news, no closed captioning, and no Government recognition for ISL yet.

What can the society do to engage with and make space for the deaf ?
