New life for disabled Indian boy found tied to a bus stop

Aug 01, 2014

Mumbai: Just a few weeks ago, a young boy tied to a bus stop in Mumbai barely received a glance from passersby oblivious to his plight. Deaf and mute, nine-year-old Lakhan was regularly tied to a pole by his elderly grandmother for fear he would run into traffic on a nearby road while she was away at work. Now, grandmother and grandson are living in a home for deaf and mute children, the patch of pavement where they both lived swapped for a roof above their heads. According to the last census conducted in 2011, around 26.8 million people are in living with disabilities in India. Courtesy: CNN
