What should we do for the mentally retarded people? Can healing be given to them?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Some remand home should be made for them. There are mentally retarded homes owned by the government. They should be kept there.
Don’t encourage the practice of giving them food on the roads. We should not make them beggars on the roads. Don’t give healing.
These people have come to receive service from you. So even after giving healing they will remain the same, and then you might start doubting the healing. You might think, 'Oh, I am giving healing to him every day and nothing is happening!' So instead of healing, do service to them .
