Differently Abled Students Formed World’s Largest Human Depiction of International Symbol of Access at Emerald Heights

The Golden Book of World Record has recognized the formation of the “Largest Human Depiction of International Symbol of Access”, which looks like a wheel chair and differently abled person sitting on it by nearly 850 such students at the Emerald Heights International School. The International Symbol of Access (ISA), also known as wheelchair symbol, is often seen where access has been improved, particularly for wheelchair users, but also for other disability issues. The ISA was designed by Danish design student Susanne Koefed in 1968.

With smiles on their faces and will power to do something unique, the students gathered at the Emerald Heights to set the world record on January 07, 2018, Sunday. The students were invited by “Saksham Malwa Prant” for ‘Divya Kumbh Pratiyogita 2018′, which was organised by NGO Saksham in association with The Emerald Heights International School.

Chief Commissioner For Persons with Disabilities (CCPD), Mr. Kamlesh Kumar Pandey was the chief guest of the event. He addressed the gathering and motivated the participants to pursue their ambitions with highest dedication. Present among the participants, football champ Vikram Agnihotri who inspired other students and participated in a friendly match. Mentor Mr. Subhash Paliwal welcomed the guests and discussed abilities that help differently abled students become independent. Explaining the situation he said, as these days most organisations are not willing to hire people until they are perfect, our skill and ambitions can help us become independent by developing our art and starting our own work.

Students from 21 different organisations from Indore, Khargone, Khandwa and Ujjain participated in the event. They also took part in other activities like sports, painting, etc. organised in the school. There were colourful dance performances by these students and students of the Emerald Heights in the closing ceremony of the event.
