Abstract

Literature exposes new realities about ourselves, disabilities, and different conceivable outcomes of how to arrange the world around us. Disabled people survive on the margins of society due to inequality, discrimination and oppression. They are always treated in different way in the society. They suffer from social exclusion as they do not fit into the social norms of what it represents to be able-bodied. The disabled people appearance in literature is to permit able-bodied people to deal with their own terrors and become more conscious of their own discriminations. This paper highlights the characters of disability in Firdaus Kanga’s Trying to Grow, Indra Sinha’s Animal’s People and Anita Desai’s Clear Light of Day. It shows how disabled person is treated as object in the society, cannot be brought under the mainstream of the society.
