“The success of the first show has seen immense changes in the artist’s lives. Their self esteem and confidence has grown. They have become independent and are able to look after basic financial needs. At home, they are respected by their family rather being treated as a burden”, adds Ms Manju Utamchandani, Project Co-ordinator, Society for the Education of the Crippled (SEC).
