Infrastructure is not disabled friendly at all.Public toilets have no ramps. Public transport has no ramps. I have seen bus drivers in the US get off to push up a seat, release the ramp so that a handicapped person may board the bus. Compassion and care is something I rarely see in India. Men sit in buses while the elderly stand! The mental attitude and framework for integration need to be urgently revamped. We have progressed in many areas but sadly in social integration we are far, far behind.
