Chandigarh Rehab Center to play Cupid for people with disabilities this Valentine's Day


Love adds meaning to life and makes us happier. We are not just talking about romantic love, but also from parents, siblings, family members and friends, which helps us feel stronger and more fulfilled.

For many, the love of a spouse or partner is crucial to help overcome the stresses and strains of everyday life. Someone who stands by you through thick and thin, who does not leave your side when you are feeling down and out.

To celebrate couples who have loved each other through the good times and the bad, the Chandigarh Spinal Rehab Center is organizing a special event this Valentine’s Day. Twenty-five couples have been invited as special guests and the aim is to bring the romance alive in the lives of couples who have been disabled due to spinal injuries.

The programme includes fun activities, bonding sessions and an overnight stay on 14 February at a hotel. Also on the cards, is a counselling session for singles, both disabled and non-disabled.

The idea of using Valentine’s Day as a means to rekindle love and romance in the lives of disabled people was the brainchild of Nicky Kaur, Founder-CEO,Chandigarh Spinal Rehab.

“People can get stressed and depressed after becoming disabled due to spinal injuries. The feeling of becoming a care getter and dependent on partner can cause negative emotions. The same is true for a partner who takes on the role of caregiver. We want to help these couples rekindle their romance and love and not take each other for granted". - Nicky Kaur, Founder-CEO of Chandigarh Spinal Rehab

Kaur firmly believes that love can overcome any obstacles and is an important part of our lives.

Like the story of Harsha and Ravi Malhotra shows. Ravi met with an accident few years back and he has been trying to cope with the changes that disability brings with the full support of his wife.

“This year we will be celebrating Valentine’s Day after two years and it means a lot to us", say the Malhotras. "After months of going through tough times, we are now in a happy place again and looking forward to the future life together".

Love has the power to heal and lift everyone's spirits, and in the worst of times, can motivate you to keep going strong.
