CENTRE FOR MENTALLY RETARDED means, “Process of helping someone and providing them a healthy and disease-free life.” Centre for mentally retarded/Rehabilitation centre are commonly seen in Western Countries with various specialities. However, in India such facilities and infrastructure are lacking or not so common. A mentally challenged child is considered as a curse of the God, many parents want to disown their own challenged child and thus they do not disclose the very existence of challenged child in their family. It is a real challenge to set up a centre for mentally retarded in India, as most of the people have superstitious. So, it is a must to have such kind of centre in India to spread awareness and to make the life of mentally challenged children and their parents easier in the society. It is basically for taking care of such children, to give them warmth, to teach them lessons of life.
