Signs of hope for Nepal's disabled

Eatery aims to remove stigma by hiring only hearing impaired as officials mull law to help the physically challenged.

    Nepalese legislators are considering a new law that would provide more job opportunities and rights for the physically challenged. They hope it could change the traditional mindset that views a disability as punishment for sins in a past life. 

    One restaurant in the country is trying to remove the stigma by employing only hearing impaired staff and customers are required to use sign language.
