Satyamev Jayate Episode 6 : Persons with disabilities and India Society


Amir Khan strikes an emotional chord once again, with a discussion on the Persons with disability on the sixth episode of Satyamev Jayate. As per official website
"Persons With Disabilities
Episode 06: We Can Fly!

People with disabilities have the same zeal and appreciation for life as the rest of us do. They can, and want to, participate in all aspects of life along with the mainstream. But people with disabilities get shunned, doubted, mocked and insulted. Access to public places and buildings is restricted and often impossible. Doors are closed for schooling and employment. India does not appear to be mature enough and understanding enough to recognise people with disabilities for what they are – people."

National Flag of France

The French flag was officially adopted on February 15, 1794. The Flag consists of three vertical equal bands of blue, white and red. The blue band is positioned nearest the flag-staff, the white in the middle, and the red on the outside. 

Early in the French Revolution, the Paris militia, which played a prominent role in the storming of the Bastille, wore a cockade of blue and red, the city's traditional colours. Prior to the revolution, France had traditionally been represented by the plain white flag, a sign of purity and strength. So the "ancient French color", was added to the militia cockade to create a tricolour, or national, cockade. The French Revolution leader Marquis de La Fayette suggested including a white cockade to the uniform of the National Guard.
