+2 student & her Tri-Cycle

What on earth would a +2 student do with a Tri-Cycle? Or am I missing something here?

LIC donates tri-cycle
As part of ‘Insurance Week’ celebrations, the Pudukottai branch of Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) donated a tri-cycle to K. Karpagam, a Plus Two student of Raniar Government Higher Secondary School in Pudukottai, recently. The Senior Divisional Manager, LIC, Thanjavur Division, K. Rajivan Nair, gave away the tri-cycle in the presence of LIC officials.

    In India, you can go to school in tricycle, but once you reach there what are you going to do? If you are physically challenged, you are doomed in India. I guess thats true in every developing country.

    Im a physically challenged person. While i used a tricycle myself when i was in school in this age its a useless piece of shit to give someone since its such a broke ass thing to have and maintain. and yes VAMSEE and REGU can shut the beep up cuz you aint worth your slimey self posting rude comments about another persons blog when you guys are not man enough to have the balls to reveal your identity.

    Why should a comment on a blog be taken so personally? When you blog and put it open for others to read then there are bound to be +ve as well as -ve criticism.
    May be the tri cycle may not be usefull to you, but that doesnt mean it will not be usefull for others. I have seen lots of poor disabled using it. It makes their mobility easier. India is not so advanced to give electirc cycles as you have in developed world. May be the day may soon come.
    And when my comment is about the blog why are u making personal comments? It shows your attitude

    And with respect to the blog, I have read many good quality blogs in chennai metblogs when most other blogging sites are having many rubbish as blogs. But can we consider posting a question on a news articale as blog? May be one would have written many quality blogs/ frequent blogs, but that doesnt mean that what ever being posted should be considered as a blog.

    And everybody has the right to comment once you are in open. Try to improve your attitude. All the best

    Renjith: Everyone has the right to diginity. REGU and RANJITH are no doers and i simply cannot tolerate such frivolous attitude. Yes, i take things personally because writing and talking about things is a passion and not a pass time for me. Udayms wrote a wonderful piece.

    I will as im one physically disabled person will tell you why the tri-cycle is a piece of shit. Polio and Cerebral Palsy patients, 90% die of spinal cord related problems, do you know why? Because we dislocate our Hips due to our bad GAIT and the stress on it.

    The Indian Tri-Cycle is so poortly designed it increases stress on your hips and spine thereby easing the process of dislocating your hips.

    The issue is a matter of life and death! Today im several steps closer to death and i have less hope although i fight back with confidence with life as with everything i do. Yet the irresponsibility of an organization not looking into safety standards of something they give to a physically challenged person, should change.

    When we start questioning things, Renjith, that is when things change for the better. If Edison was happy with oil lamps we would still be in the dark. Similarly trolls ought to be questioned and checked and so must the quality of things we have access to and have to use with be questioned and challenged constantly, there in comes betterment!

    Ok. Just to clarify… I DID understand that by tri-cycle they didn’t mean the toddler’s version. But, my point was this. A physically impaired +2 student would probably need a pair of crutches more than a tri-cycle. Atleast she can use it for daily moving around. The tricycle, I would have guessed, would have been more useful for an unemployed physically impaired person to move around to earn a livelihood (for ex- selling stuff like lottery tickets etc.)… Thats, why I was amused. Maybe I should have been elaborate in my comments in the post… :)
