Swarga Foundation celebrated their fourth anniversary and the launch of the calendar “Women of Substance” – featuring twelve differently-abled women achievers from across India – at an event in Coimbatore on September 29, 2018.
It was a proud moment for Pallium India as well, since our volunteer, Ashla Rani is one of the women featured in the calendar. Ashla writes:
Imagine that you are watching a spell-binding dance performance and you fall in love with the passion you see in the eyes of the performer. Later, you are told that she cannot hear the music, but she has learnt it from her guru through interpretation!!! She loved dancing from her childhood. In spite of evident obstacles in her path, she and her guru found ways to learn the rhythm. When you are born with a talent and have the passion to take it forward, there is no limit to where you can reach! Prerana, (true to her name, which means ‘inspiration’) encouraged everyone to follow their passion and achieve what was possible, and even those that appear impossible …
It was an honour to be a part of Swarga Foundation’s 4th anniversary celebration and even more so to be featured in their calendar. It was an evening where everyone enjoyed EQUALLY. There were no differences even when each one was different in his/her own way.
