Question: The lesson, 'On the face of it', is an apt depiction of the loneliness and sense of alienation experienced by people on account of a disability. Explain. [CBSE Delhi 2011]

Answer: Man is vain, selfish and prejudiced. He does not cherish anything that is incomplete or impaired. This nature of man creates a vacuum in the life of human beings who are handicapped, for no fault of theirs. A war veteran, an accident victim, polio affected, or a person born handicapped is looked upon by the so-called ‘Normal’ people with a false sense of sympathy, disgust or repulsion. As a result, the injury that is physical becomes secondary to the injury that is caused to the mind, and psyche of the person. They become pessimistic, feel lonely and alienated they are rejected by society.
