Three articles on disabled soldiers

Disabled soldiers are again in the news.

It is heartening to see growing awareness on the subject, especially the invisible disabilities that one cannot see.

It is also heartening to see positive statements of the current Raksha Mantri that she is committed to withdrawing all litigation against disabled soldiers from the Supreme Court.

That said, these three pieces should be read by all of us:

The first one is by Ms Ratna Vishwanathan, a civil servant who has served in the Ministry of Defence. It is ironic that this comes from a former officer of the civil services.

The second one is a well researched piece by Abhishek Dey for Scroll.in.

The third one is by Member of Parliament Mr Rajeev Chandrasekhar for the Times of India, written from the heart. 

Please take out time and go through them.
