Public transport for handicapped people

This petition had 209 supporters

Today, June 25th, I saw an old couple trying to catch a rickshaw outside R-city mall, Ghatkopar, at 7pm standing in the pouring rain. The lady was handicapped . Seeing their attempts, my sister , father , cousin & I decided to help them. But the rickshaw walas were not ready to stop at all. We Stood in the middle of the road, trying to make the rickshaws stop,but  no one even slowed down.What's the use of public transport then? Why drive a public transport vehicle when you don't want to help the public reach their destination? Seeing a handicapped person, anyone & everyone should help them & give them the best facilities they deserve in this world. Where is our HUMANITY? If there aren't people willing to help them, what will happen? We all have experienced this sort of stuff, but by God's grace are in good conditions & are living healthy lives. These people deserve so much more. Youngsters learn from their elders. Is this the kind of culture that is being handed down to us. Where has compassion gone from human beings ? We say that this sort of helping should be done for them, but do we actually take action? We blame the western world for the bad habits we learn from them, but why not pick up the good things they practice? Like having specialised services for handicapped and old people. Let's not just talk about it, but put our words into action.
