"Sports and art both seem to be entertainment but for human beings it is not only entertainment but a necessity to lead a healthy life. But for people living with disability it is mostly taken as a luxury and my aim is to make people aware that people living with disabilities’ also have needs and wants in relation to culture,art and sports. Only when that is recognized we can live in dignity.”
