These are only a few of the umpteen stories of resilience, courage and remarkable determination that offer a sensitive, holistic view of the lives of persons with disabilities in this much-needed book for today's India. Navigating a range of topics with lucid ease – from history and laws to widespread social attitudes – it meticulously records and amplifies the diverse, vibrant voices of persons with disabilities. Equally, it turns its gaze on those inextricably linked to their lives – health professionals, educators, trainers, employers, caregivers and activists – highlighting the key roles they play.

C.K. Meena

A science graduate from Kerala who fled to her adoptive city of Bangalore for her post-graduation in English, C.K. Meena strayed into journalism and later branched out into writing fiction. She has been on the staff of Deccan Herald and is a columnist for The Hindu. She is also a founding member of the Asian College of Journalism in Bangalore, and has three published novels and innumerable features and columns to her credit. A card-carrying Luddite, she has never been remotely tempted to tweet or blog, but she has succumbed to the lure of her rarely used Kindle during the pandemic and is wondering what horrors await her.
