Various types of impairments of human beings living in the modern world is one of the notable aspects when it comes to discerning certain traits which primarily guide and regulate the basic phenomenon of living in this world. There are numerous individuals on earth who suffer from or rather have been suffering from some specific hindrances so to say which not only sort of cripple them in their path to fulfilling their dreams and aspirations but also, at the same time act as serious detriments in their sound personal growth and development as well. Literature has always been the mirror of human beings and their accomplishments. There are many notable fictions which deal with the nuances of disability of individuals and also the associated studies. What it brings to light is that disability is quite normal in terms of some kind of abnormality of human beings but then, it is the various mechanism of the society which rather portrays the same in a quite negative light. This paper is an attempt in order to make a critical evaluative study of the ramifications of disability in the field of literature. In the very process, the paper also deals with the tenets of disability studies in general.
