Ekadaksha Learning Center for Children with special needs

What we do - Ekadaksha Learning Center Chennai - By Stephen Eastop

Celebrating India's 73rd independence day 2019 at Ekadaksha Learning Center, ChennaiIt is India's 73rd INDEPENDENCE DAY today. As a country, we have achieved a lot in various fields though there may still be a long way to go. In the field of education too, there have been so many improvements and exposure. When we think of special education in particular, the scene seems to improve in certain services in parts of the country, while in other parts, people are not even aware. Inspite of awareness, our country still hesitates to accept people with special needs completely. Though facilities have improved through Accessible India and various campaigns, though people with special needs now have access to jobs, though inclusion and integration is part of many institutions, though awareness has increased - Inspite of all this, whole hearted acceptance of the person as an individual is still something lacking in our country. 

On this Independence day, let us all pledge our allegiance to the flag of Bharat, to accept every Human being as they are. A person with special needs, is an individual who has their own mind, heart and soul - Accept that. Don't hesitate to communicate, interact and understand him/her. You never know, you may just get a wonderful friend. 

At Ekadaksha, Children made India flags and displayed the flags. The children of the School readiness programme gave a speech on Independence day. The whole school sang the National Anthem 'Jana Gana Mana' together. The Anthem is sung everyday during assembly and the children have listened, watched and learnt. In pure innocence they sing the anthem. Though the words are their own and they may not understand the meaning of Patriotism, they definitely instil it in us. True love, A pure heart and a beautiful tune. Jai Hind. 

Happy Independence day. Click here to view our patriotic children:-).
