DWish, a group of parents of kids with disabilities have come together to host GlamFare 2020, a fashion show that will be teeming with foot-tapping music. The primary idea behind organizing this event is to give children as well as adults with disabilities a platform to showcase their skills and prove to the society that they are capable of doing everything that others can.
A die-hard fan of Salman Khan, nine-year-old Baiduriyya Bakshi loves dancing. This Kolkata-based kid makes sure he watches every movie of his favorite actor and can even mimic his moves. Baiduriyya has autism, but that doesn't stop him from feeling excited about showing off his move at the GlamFare 2020, which will also feature a musical concert with people with disabilities next month.
Organized by DWish Multidisciplinary Therapy Centre and Prevocational & Vocational Unit, GlamFare 2020 aims at giving children and adults with disabilities a unique platform to show off their talents. DWish is a recently formed group comprising parents of kids with disabilities.
DWish founder Sumitra Paul Bakshi said the idea behind starting this group is changing the way people look at children with disabilities. It is assumed that kids with disabilities are incapable of doing anything, but DWish wants to debunk this presumption, Bakshi explained while talking to NewzHook.
Nearly 25 kids and adults from across the country are expected to grace the event. The participants are coming without receiving any sort of financial help for their tickets or accommodation from DWish. The event will have people from cities like Jalpaiguri, Mumbai and New Delhi attending.
Popular singer Benzy, who has autism, will be one of the star attractions of GlamFare 2020. Dhoon Foundation founder and Benzy’s mother Kavita Kumar is in favor of promoting such events since they encourage those living with disabilities and also help to change society's perception about them.
