Computer as ideal tool to change the life of unfortunate victims of
Developments in the fields of science & Technology have
Human Life at material level. But in actuality, this progress is
superficial: underneath modern men & women are living in conditions
of great mental & emotional stress, even in developed & affluent
countries. People from all over the world irrespective of culture &
economic background suffer from mental illness & though a number of
researches are carried out worldwide but till date it has not been
possible to resolve the problem.
In today's world stress is increasing everyday. The individualistic
approach towards life; the neonatal family system has increased the
burden even further. Without adequate support system of friends &
relatives, people are falling prey to mental illness. The
inferiority feelings of these persons lead to disruption of
communication between the sufferer & the family members & friends.
The sufferers prefer to confine themselves within the four walls of
their home & remain withdrawn from the whole world. They prefer to
stay in touch with their world of fantasy -far away from the world
of reality. Disability caused by some of the mental illnesses often
remains invisible to the society leading to lack of support system &
facilities for them.
These unfortunate disabled persons not only need medication &
counseling but a thorough rehabilitation programme to bring
them back to the main stream of life. The task being not an easy
one. According to the research works these persons need some work &
income to improve their quality of life.
In this scenario where society is adverse towards them, where stigma
towards mental illness prevails; where help from friends & community
is not available- training them in computer & forming groups through
computer was thought to be an ideal option for the solution- a
solution to the problems of modern life through modern technology.
It was seen that this insecure disabled persons feel free to
with machine more easily than with
society & people.
Computer provides them the needed education & information
needed for their further developments.
Computers provide them facilities to interact with others &
form self-help groups.
Computer also enabled them to earn their livelihood.
