Dr Mahendra Nath Pandey, Minister of State, Ministry of Human Resource Development launched the Indian National Anthem video in sign language at Films Division Auditorium, New Delhi on 10th Aug, 2017.
The video features actor Amitabh Bachchan along with children with disability singing the National Anthem in sign language at the backdrop of the Majestic Red Fort.
The film is conceptualised by Satish Kapoor, Founder Director, We Care Film Festival.
We Care Film Festival produced the Film under the aegis of Brotherhood, an NGO.
It is directed by Govind Nihalani and the music is scored by late Aadesh Shrivastava.
India’s development will be complete when our divyangjan become an integral part of it and come forward in the nation building.
The term 'divyang' (divine body) instead of 'viklang' must be used for persons with disability.
We must create an environment for the disabled people by which they can be able to earn a livelihood and live an independent life like any other citizen.
The decision on reservation in vacancies in government establishments to increase it from 3% to 4% for certain persons or class of persons with benchmark disability is one such instance.
