Real disabilities

"Part of the problem with the word 'disabilities' is that it immediately suggests an inability to see or hear or walk or do other things that many of us take for granted. But what of people who can't feel? Or talk about their feelings? Or manage their feelings in constructive ways? What of people who aren't able to form close and strong relationships? And people who cannot find fulfillment in their lives, or those who have lost hope, who live in disappointment and bitterness and find in life no joy, no love? These, it seems to me, are the real disabilities." ― Fred Rogers, The World According to Mister Rogers: Important Things to Remember

The world isn't built with a ramp

The joy of suffering

"In the years since then there has been a gradual change in the climate of ideas with regard to the disabled. It had begun to dawn on the able-bodied world that it is possible to combine an unsatisfactory body with a perfectly satisfactory brain, and a personality at any rate as satisfactory as most other people's. Trailing somewhat behind that, but now beginning to emerge also, is the much more startling idea that the disabled may not only have normal brains and the ability to hold down normal jobs and the wish to join in normal recreations and be accepted for ourselves, just as people, but normal emotions also. That we may have the same emotional needs as anybody else, and the ability to satisfy those needs in each other, or even in the able-bodied." ― Rosemary Sutcliff, Blue Remembered Hills: A Recollection

"The downside of my celebrity is that I cannot go anywhere in the world without being recognized. It is not enough for me to wear dark sunglasses and a wig. The wheelchair gives me away." ― Stephen Hawking

"Try not to associate bodily defect with mental, my good friend, except for a solid reason" ― Charles Dickens, David Copperfield

"I choose not to place "DIS", in my ability." ― Robert M. Hensel

"I will crawl upon my knees just to know the joy of suffering." ― Sidewalk

PNB observes "International Day of Persons with Disabilities
The way we are able to utilize the exceptional talent availableis a critical factor today. Many a times we assess talent based on look and feel, which is sometimes wrong. Intrinsic quality does not have any barriers and comes from the commitment of heart and mind and with those two working together, any physical disability or otherwise can never be an impending factor for achieving success. Even for a normal person achieving excellence without commitment and passion is impossible. .

Citing the example of Mr Suhas LY, he stated further that "It is worth understanding how commitment can bring laurels for an individual at both personal and professional front."

It is very difficult to imagine ability to not only handle a role as a bureaucrat so efficiently but also working very hard to come out with flying colours in the Olympics . Clearly signifies commitment to win laurels not just for him(Mr.Suhas) but for the country at large."

Commenting on the PNB Pride – CRMD Module, he stated, "Today banking has transformed with digitisation, bringing customer in the focus and raised opportunities to utilise the services of employees who are differently abled in terms of their ability to generate awareness and engagement with the customers. This initiative taken on the technology front by PNB is appreciable and will go a long way in creating better customer engagement."

Mr. Vijay Dube, Executive Director at PNB, emphasised on the abilities of differently abled staff members and utilisation of their skills in the conceptualisation of PNB warriors and implementation of PNB Pride and said, " the development of PNB Pride CRMD module was through a participative model and feedback received from differently abled staff members were incorporated in the module- CRMD Module is specifically developed with focus on our visually impaired employees so that they are able to work with convenience and contribute to the business and collections in loan accounts".
