'Being Disabled Is Not a Barrier to Success'

Gurgaon (Haryana). When millions of disabled people are still dreaming of a decent life, 23-year-old Madhubala Sharma, blind since birth, has etched out// her own identity as a voice and accent trainer in a multinational IT company here.

Although the blind community faces a lot of barriers ranging from lack of education to poor acceptance among employers, the desire to be different can help them to overcome all of them, said Sharma, currently working with IBM Daksh, a leading business process outsourcing (BPO) firm in Gurgaon on the outskirts of Delhi.

After her graduation she learned how to operate computer, mastering the Jaws software that speaks out words written in a file. Later, she joined Daksh in July 2005.

According to the 2001 census, the number of disabled people in the country is 22 million, but the National Centre for Promotion of Employment for Disabled People (NCPEDP) claims that the number is over 60 million.

While 93 percent of the disabled in rural India are below secondary level (in education), the percentage in urban areas stands at 82. Only nine out of 1,000 physically challenged people in urban areas are able to get into engineering as against three in rural areas.
