World disability day is the day to recognise and celebrate the remarkable work done by people dedicating their life. The day is to include the stories of courage of various disabled people. There are countless stories to be told like stories of transformation of life from being a normal person to disabled. Stories of courage, victory, joy and moment of success.

Even adding a ramp would be a giant leap as the change is yet to be seen
