I hope so too. I have heard and seen some evidence that in the major cities things are slowly changing--there is still no real opportunity for the disabled unless they are blind or deaf as their are special schools and a different culture tradition in treating people with those issues, but alas in the countryside things remain. Even if it changes one in a one thousand the difference will be better than none and with time things will change even further.

With hope,
