Leaving on a Jet Plane

Jeeja Ghosh was removed from her airplane seat because the pilot was 'uncomfortable' with a handicapped person travelling independently. Ghosh has studied abroad, travels, and makes her away around Kolkata on the crowded public bus system. Alone. She has Cerebral Palsy. 

In spite of the Person's With Disabilities Act and airline regulations specifically prohibiting discrimination, the pilot's 'discomfort' pulled rank over Ghosh's ability, plans, and choice.
