About this submission

In the city of Pune, Ankur Vidyamandir is a school that enrolls both disabled and fully-functional students, an occurrence that seems to be an anomaly in India. After meeting the Principal/Founder of the school, I learned some of the massive stigmas that revolve around people with disabilities in India, and how they often overlooked in the discussion of Indian social issues. This short documentary was made to shed light on these issues by the words and knowledge of Principal Deshpande, with personal anecdotes from both disabled and fully-abled children that are enrolled in the school.
