It was a memorable evening for over 40 disabled people who participated in the ‘Divya Heroes’ event in Ahmedabad last Sunday on 1 March. This was the 17th Divyang Talent Show organised by NGO Narayan Seva Sanstha (NSS) that works towards empowering disabled people in India.

An evening to remember
Even today, disabled people are often side-lined. They are denied opportunities to come to mainstream society due to which many talents across India goes unnoticed. ‘Divya Heroes’ show aimed to reflect the sentiments of equality, accessibility and opportunity and bring everyone together.
Actor Dilip Joshi was the chief guest for the event. The audience were truly amazed by the confidence exhibited by participants who ramp walked and did complicated stunts on Mal-Khamb and wheelchair. Performances of Suresh, Shubham, Jagdish Patel, Yogesh Prajapati, and Bajrang Nehra drew large rounds of applause.
According to Joshi, the event was an inspiring and trend setting initiative.
Disabled people have a crucial role to play in shaping the new India. Breaking the physical stereotype is not enough. It requires more attention to bring out the best in them. Utilize their potential, inspire society and encourage them to prosper towards a better future- Dilip Joshi, Actor.
