Moving around in Dubai is a breeze for a 'person of determination'. I am an entrepreneur and have been coming to the United Arab Emirates for last two years from India. I am wheelchair-bound and use metros, buses extensively for travel within the emirates. Recently, I got a card issued by the Ministry of Community Development (MOCD) which is meant for people of determination in the UAE. It is extremely helpful, gives 50 per cent discount on special taxis, and allows free access at several places like Dubai Frame and events. Accessibility isn't an issue in this country for people like me. I wish to thank the rulers for their compassion and taking good care of all its residents.
