4 Sports wheelchairs to national and international basketball players at KES’ Sri T.P. Bhatia Science College were donated through donors by ACI today 20 June 2018. These each chair cost 25000 each. The first recipient of such chair last month Ms Dinkle Shah scores 98 percentile in CAT. It is a joint effort of all led by Dr Girish Trivedi of ACI
I think there is a great deal to be done. On sharing with these girls about how they travel in the country or abroad with two wheel chairs to participate in events I was moved to know their hardships. In our country other than some support at the airport they have no help. In fact to travel in train they have to pay extra to carry their wheel chairs. And no family member is allowed. Between a team only one helper is given to carry out their daily routine work for which they are dependent.
I have decided to take my students to witness their practice matches at Kalina on Saturday and Sunday between 12 to 3 pm indoor stadium. It will be a unique experience to see these specially abled girls practice for international match of basketball on wheelchair where they have to manage dribbling of ball along with managing wheelchairs with same height of basket as in a normal court.
