Abstract: The Strong is duty-bound to help the Weak. This is the mentality which the handicapped has to live with when he comes face to face with society. Is this a fair mentality towards the handicapped? Yes, only to a certain extent, because in everyday life we find that this kind of mentality is more apt to hinder us than to help us. In the sense that the strong has still not sufficiently understood how the weak can help the strong.
