If you google the name “SCOTT RAINS” you get 9lakh + entries saying and giving loads of info and research about which he is advocating from a wheelchair .. I always wonder how a single person can create such an awareness among globe.. But Scott has much deeper goals regarding inclusion of person with disabilities. It’s accessing the earth in the real meaning by persons with disabilities with dignity and respect that is natural right of every human being.
According to him, a country is not complete till it adopts its design according to the needs of its physically vulnerable population. That too the information of change should be perceptible and easily accessible.
Scott, a Buddhist by practice, a researcher to every bone, a friend for disabled population across the globe, a universal design expert , a wheeling encyclopedia of information for access service industry, a devoted family man and finally a brother to me ( to inherit the same craziness to travel the earth, incidentally he knows behan only in hindi..!)
Today, I feel so happy to wish Scott a special and warm birthday … for one thing, that down the line , he would create the real and accessible legacy for disability and right inclusion in the minds of legislation, business, service industry and everywhere that .. The next generation disabled may not be deprived of dignified life.. Just because they are disabled and there is NO ACCESS
GOD BLESS YOU SCOTT WITH GREAT HEALTH AND MUCH GREATER WORK AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS… I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS..
