Ranchi: Jharkhand Governor CP Radhakrishnan emphasised the need for creating an inclusive environment for the physically challenged to ensure necessary resources, training and support to develop their talent.

It is the responsibility of all of us to dismantle barriers to Divyang individuals and provide equal opportunities for them to thrive and reach their full potential. One of the first steps towards empowering Divyang individuals is to promote awareness and understanding, the governor said.

He further added,

Divyangs have shattered stereotypes and proven their potential from sports to arts, academia to entrepreneurship. We have witnessed remarkable performances by Paralympic athletes who have overcome physical challenges and reached the pinnacle of their respective disciplines. Their determination and unparalleled skills have inspired millions around the world. Also, in the field of arts and culture.

Apart from significant contribution in artistic pursuits, the academic realm has also witnessed exceptional achievements by Divyang individuals, Mr. Radhakrishnan said.

Despite facing different obstacles, they have pursued education with unwavering dedication. Providing platforms and opportunities for Divyang individuals to showcase their talents and skills is essential. By doing so, we can amplify and encourage their potential, he said.

The governor said the new building signified an unwavering commitment to serving the needs of the underprivileged and symbolised hope, progress, and a brighter future for countless Divyang individuals in this region.

I am happy to know that the Sahayata Samiti was started in Jaipur in the year 1975. In the last 47 years… the centre has opened more than 30 branches nationwide to serve the Divyangs locally. Apart from this, service is being provided in 35 countries all over the world. … it provides artificial limbs, callipers, and all other rehabilitation aids and appliances (like wheelchairs, hand-paddle tricycles, crutches, etc.) to all its beneficiaries, totally free of cost, he said.

NDTV – Dettol have been working towards a clean and healthy India since 2014 via the Banega Swachh India initiative, which is helmed by Campaign Ambassador Amitabh Bachchan. The campaign aims to highlight the inter-dependency of humans and the environment, and of humans on one another with the focus on One Health, One Planet, One Future – Leaving No One Behind. It stresses on the need to take care of, and consider, everyone’s health in India – especially vulnerable communities – the LGBTQ populationindigenous people, India’s different tribes, ethnic and linguistic minorities, people with disabilities, migrants, geographically remote populations, gender and sexual minorities. In wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the need for WASH (WaterSanitation and Hygiene) is reaffirmed as handwashing is one of the ways to prevent Coronavirus infection and other diseases. The campaign will continue to raise awareness on the same along with focussing on the importance of nutrition and healthcare for women and children, fight malnutrition, mental wellbeing, self care, science and health, adolescent health & gender awareness. Along with the health of people, the campaign has realised the need to also take care of the health of the eco-system. Our environment is fragile due to human activity, which is not only over-exploiting available resources, but also generating immense pollution as a result of using and extracting those resources. The imbalance has also led to immense biodiversity loss that has caused one of the biggest threats to human survival – climate change. It has now been described as a “code red for humanity.” The campaign will continue to cover issues like air pollutionwaste managementplastic banmanual scavenging and sanitation workers and menstrual hygiene. Banega Swasth India will also be taking forward the dream of Swasth Bharat, the campaign feels that only a Swachh or clean India where toilets are used and open defecation free (ODF) status achieved as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014, can eradicate diseases like diahorrea and the country can become a Swasth or healthy India.
