Display products made by special children and marginalized women from the society on 23 October 2019.
Diwali being one of the biggest festivals in India is celebrated with a lot of zeal and enthusiasm. Just as excitedly as we wait for the festival of lights to add a little spark to our homes, we also wait for those really happening Diwali Melas where we can get all our shopping for the festival done from.
Of all the Diwali Melas, Deepak Foundation’s Diwali Mela is special since it is focused on lightening up the lives of children with special needs and marginalized women. This year, children with special needs and self-help group women are displaying their unique skills in the mela.
This mela is special as all the products, from handmade candles, diyas, chocolates, embroidered bags and pouches everything is done by visually-impaired and children with special needs. One will find cloth bags, handicraft items, home decor items and even a food court for the buyers to silence their hunger when they are done with shopping.
There will be loads of games, joy rides, and many more fun activities to make you feel nostalgic and take you back to your childhood. Make your plans and head over for a day full of fun and frolic with your family. Stand-up comedian Manan Desai will be there as a guest of honour. The event will take place on October 23 between 10 am-5 pm at Samaj Suraksha Sankul, Nizampura.
This Diwali, let’s forget our differences and celebrate together! In the words of Mahatma Gandhi, Diwali is a reminder and an opportunity to “Be the change you want to see in the world!”
