It was year 2009, a friend of mine invited to join. I didn't know what it was, but I went to know more and volunteered the event. I was sitting at a corner, where she comes with a beautiful smile and positive attitude. Sruti ma'am..a wonderful lady, she motivated and inspired in her talk that made me yes ! I can and she is mine hero.There happened I become the member of Swabhiman and Anjali. Every year I learn something and goes on. The best thing is I enjoy, feel loved with disabled kids. (No no) The actually term is ability challenged kids, which I share with everyone. Thanks to everyone for making me what i am today. I can speak, lead, take challenges, fall down and get up, take decissions it's all because of Anjali. I will be part of the international event till my last breath.

My Dad always told me that “Learning and success is always out of your comfort zone. “ I never understood until I stepped into Swabhiman. Every plea I gave for avoiding a home work, every reason I gave to avoid an assignment seemed so trivial. Life and time seemed more of a responsibility, more meaningful than something you can dare to waste. Anjali came my way as a project. I was told to organize a national level programme from the scratch to finish. I never knew it will mean life to me. I was told I will have to organize this for children with special needs. I was surprised to see these kids! The way they sing, they dance, they draw, they click; how can they be called disabled? There is where I learnt and understood the word ‘DifferentlyAbled” and I admit they are.Abhipsa Mishra
