Differently abled children in Jaipur celebrate Independence Day
The special schools in Jaipur celebrated Independence Day ahead of the actual day so that they could celebrate 15th August function with normal siblings in the general education schools.

In a function at Disha Foundation a short cultural programme was held after flag hoisting in which children read out a short poem, sang a group song and performed a dance.

After the cultural show, there was free dance in which the teachers, support staff and pupil teachers of B.Ed. and Diploma classes participated.

The place was done up tri-colour streamer and rangoli to give it a festive look. For such children, because of their low attention span, delayed cognitive development and short view-field depth, it has been advised that the performances should be short and circular or semi-circular seating close to the stage should be done.

Also, the special independence day kits should be produced with cut-outs of the independence day motifs so that children can 'play independence day' quite akin to the 'paying with kitchen kit' or 'playing with a doctors kit'.

Foe differently abled children accommodation and adaptation are a must for all experiences and participation in events, it is said.

Independence Day, one of the three National holidays in India and is observed in all Indian states and union territories.

The celebrations at the national level begin with "Address to the Nation" by the President of India on the night of August 14.

On 15 August, the prime minister hoists the Indian flag on the ramparts of the Red Fort in Delhi. Twenty-one gun shots are fired in honour of the solemn occasion.

In his speech, the prime minister highlights the past year's achievements, raises important issues and calls for further development.

In state capitals, the Chief Ministers of individual states unfurl the national flag, followed by parades, pageants and short cultural programmes.
