“Differently abled” is too inadequate a term.

“Exceptionally abled” would be more like it. They are achievers battling the odds that an insensitive society offers them.

On December 3, International Day of Persons with Disabilities, a celebration of talents of the differently-abled was held at Manaveeyam Veethi, Thiruvananthapuram. The program was organized by Pallium India in association with the Manaveeyam Theruvorakuttam, the All Kerala Wheelchair Rights Federation (AKWRF) Thiruvananthapuram unit and Cheshire Home. Please come along next time and see the amazing talents – Rajesh singing like an angel, Jyothi the poet reciting his own poetry, and a lot, lot more.

And they had fun too. More than 40 wheelchair users participated in art and sports events including wheelchair race.

Officials of AKWRF, Sindhu Sudevan (President) and Binu Salam (Treasurer) were among the participants.
