Church in Kolkata holds heritage walk for the deaf
The St. John's Church in Kolkata held a heritage walk in sign language to explain the history of the church.
Students of the Ideal School For the Deaf looked at their teachers as they explained the church's 230-year-old history through sign language.
The idea was to present the inclusivity of heritage structures. The teachers said that disabilities should not be a barrier to access and experience heritage.
The students were given special kits and visual aids and were taken around the church grounds. They will be asked to interpret the church in their own way through paintings.
