Those smiles on their faces, those glimmering eyes, that learning to not give up, that living life the way it comes, inculcates in us the feeling and desire to be better and not lament over the minute problems in life!
DAY 3- FLASH MOB
ÔÇ£All I wanna say is that they donÔÇÖt really care about us!ÔÇØ
Dancing on the beats of this Michael Jackson song were the Drishti members all ready and pumped to present the FLASH MOB! at Infinity 2 (Malad). The main theme around which the flash mob revolved was to instill the feeling of togetherness in the society and make everyone realize that hearing impaired children are to be seen on the same page as us for they are not different, just unique! Everything in the flash mob was flawless.
Team Drishti ’15 had organised a ‘Drawing Competition’ on the 31st of January for hearing-impaired students of schools under JOSH Foundation, to provide an outlet for their expression. The students were divided into different age groups- 5 to 10, 10 to 15 and 15 to 20. With beaming faces, they took their paintbrushes in hand and started┬á their touch of magic on paper.
While they drew, it was a pleasure to watch them, colour the incomplete portions as if unfolding the manifold┬á colours of life, one by one. Some drew sceneries, others were excerpts of abstract art. Towards the end, they were also given a certificate of participation carrying which they went home with broad smiles and heavy hearts. With support and help these students can make this world a commendable masterpiece.
