God bless Mr. Kohli, it must still be customary to say - deaf and dumb in India. Here one could get a verbal thrasing for saying that. It was assumed that since one who could not hear was an animal who was uneducatable therefore dumb as they could only mumble, grunt and scream or cry.

The Helen Keller story proved that to be wrong and i remwmber that a version of the story was made only a few years back in in India, 'Time'/ Vaackt? if i remember correctly. We usually say Deafmute now or the pc term hearing or speach challenged or impaired.
