Kolkata, May 19 | The international non-profit organization Narayan Seva Sansthan (NSS) organized its “Divya Heroes – 2024”, Talent and Fashion Show on Sunday at Dhono Dhanyo Auditorium 2, Alipore, Kolkata. Despite their physical challenges—some without both legs, others with a single leg, or arm, or reliant on crutches and wheelchairs—the enthusiasm and passion of each artist soared. Their captivating performances won over the hearts of all attendees. More than 500 people were present to encourage and applaud the talented differently-abled artists.
Announcing the executive committee of the Kolkata branch, Narayan Seva Sansthan President Prashant Agarwal administered the oath of office to Pramod Kumar, Dharmchand Bhandari, Vikas Jaiswal, Ramsurat Jaiswal, and Vikas Jaiswal.
The talent show began with the lighting of the lamp and a rendition of Ganesh Vandana. Shubham and his team from West Bengal demonstrated that they are second to none. Jagdish Patel from MP and Kamlesh Patel from Gujarat showcased amazing solo dances, stunts, and performances on wheelchairs. Jagdish’s salute to Mother India from a 10-foot pole ignited a sense of patriotism in everyone. Palak Singh from Rajasthan, performing with an artificial limb, and the Rajasthani folk dance performance gave the audience a glimpse of Rajasthan’s rich cultural heritage. Following this, differently-abled individuals with prosthetic limbs performed a Krishna dance and parade. The stunts, devotional acts, and patriotic presentations by these differently-abled artists inspired even able-bodied individuals to achieve greatness. All these differently-abled performers became self-reliant through training at Sansthan.
These artists have also personally crafted their dresses at Sansthan itself. During the show, differently-abled children walked the ramp and shared their experiences. The atmosphere of the auditorium became lively with the self-confidence, skills, and spirits of the differently-abled individuals.
President Agarwal, in his address, stated that despite physical disabilities, these individuals are mentally resilient. He emphasized that these differently-abled artists will serve as inspirational figures for society and other differently-abled individuals.
He further highlighted that Narayan Seva Sansthan has been dedicated to recognizing the talents and power of the differently-abled and has provided a platform to over 350 such Divyang Artists over the years. Besides organizing grand camps in Siliguri, West Bengal, he also announced plans to empower 1000 differently-abled individuals. Thirty differently-abled artists participated in this talent show, presenting ten performances each across three rounds. Ramavdh Jaiswal expressed gratitude for the event.
