Differently Abled People

Batch 1

I took a training session on Leadership Skills & How I can be a leader? I addressed on mentioning a note that ‘we’ are disabled with one or other factor hence none can escape from disability. However dreams and aspirations are the means to move forward irrespective of limitations. I learnt several sign gesture to understand their conversation. It was enriching experience and thank all the people associated for a beautiful cause. I am moved and blessed for having an opportunity to train DAP. All glory to God! Hope is Hopeful & Wonderful!

PK is OK


I had to wait for several days before could make myself free to watch PK. I found three movies (there might be more) in Hindi that were clever business script – Madras Cafe, Haider, and PK. Abhijat Joshi and Hirani script had the visuals of alien neck wearing a thing (remote) as a central theme. This is perhaps the right thing otherwise their could have been more damage. Second central theme was incompetent behaviour of alien to understand the world, this was perhaps second right thing that writers have done. As we like to encourage and lend helping hand to our children knowing their innocence. Then the movie moves into confusion state (the third right thing) that mills around various elements that laughter over serious issue. This was needed to keep the things lighter and alien, innocence elements were put right into audience mind. The fourth thing (combination of right-wrong) was the conclusion (not just the climax) that was fragile that perhaps raised eyebrows of some. Overall PK’s wrong has got it right!
