Abstract

Disability is a condition that is experienced by all human beings in different forms. It is a universal phenomenon with greater political implications. One of the fascinating features of disability is that a majority of people fail to recognize the hidden agenda that is rooted in the construction of a disabled body. Disability as a mode of exclusion is established on the traditional humanistic notion of ‘ablesim’ that which rejects the variant bodies, like, black, impaired, mutants, animals, homosexuals, and insane, which can be collectively called as the Other.
