Make Durga puja festival accessible for aged, people with disabilities
October 11, 2016
Most times, organizers of Durga festival pandals forget to make it accessible for elderly and people with disabilities.
This year an award function held by National Institute of Professionals is going to judge the pandals and appreciate the best ones that are accessible.
Also a guide in Braille for the blind and a one-day assisted tour of major Durga puja pandals for the elderly have been worked upon.
The idea is to address the needs of such people and make the Puja pandals more inclusive.
