Hearing disability will not become a curse

It was certainly pleasant to get the distinction of being independent in 1947 after a long war, but it was very difficult to achieve achievement in every field and meet the common needs. Today we are celebrating the nectar festival of freedom and of course, the country is moving fast on the path of development in every field.

There was a time when hearing disability was considered a curse due to lack of awareness, but now many schemes for the hearing impaired are being run through government and non-government organizations (NGOs), so that they can be integrated into the mainstream. In this, along with removing the hearing impairment, education and employment programs are included. The downside with hearing disabilities is that they are also prone to speech impairments, which makes this disability more severe. The government has implemented many schemes under the National Health Mission, in which free training, hearing aid, and other facilities are being provided. India’s first 3000 words sign language dictionary was launched in 2018 by the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment. Earlier there was no standard sign language in India. The government is providing cochlear implants free of cost to needy children so that they can hear and the problem of deafness is removed.
