It is quite a challenge for differently-abled people to roam around in public places specifically in our country because major sites doesn’t support the basic facilities required for a smooth transition by them. This has been an issue for a while with nothing much happening on this front. But a recent development announced by Telangana government does ignite a ray of hope and the initiative only sounds promising

The government has announced the opening of a disabled-friendly park in Hyderabad, which has been designed keeping in mind all the basic amenities required by them to enjoy effortlessly in public spaces.
