21 May 2018: Jaipur: Narayan Seva Sansthan organizes ramp walk exclusively for specially-abled
A number of specially-abled persons walked down the ramp yesterday in Jaipur, in a fashion show exclusively organized for them by Udaipur-based Narayan Seva Sansthan, which works for specially-abled and underprivileged individuals.
Every specially-abled model was accompanied by an able co-model.
The four-round fashion show was based on their categories, with calipers, wheelchairs, crutches and artificial limbs. Each round had 10 participants.
Inspiration: Inspired by specially-abled person's performance, says Sudha Chandran
Actress and Bharatnatyam performer Sudha Chandran, who had lost a leg in an accident said, "Someone with a disability should not be ignored. I'm inspired and touched by their performance."
Prashant Agarwal, Narayan Seva Sansthan President, said the journey for participants from learning skills on sewing-machine to apparel designing and further showcasing their designs with full confidence on the ramp has not been easy.
