World Autism Awareness Day observed in Jaipur in variety of ways
In Jaipur, the World Autism Awareness Day (April 2) was observed by organization of a cultural function at the Albert Hall Museum in which differently abled children of various special schools in the city. Children performed on popular songs in glittering costumes to spread awareness about autism among the society.

Also, at Disha ? A Resource Centre for Multiple Disabilities, a plan for evacuating children with special needs during an emergency was presented by Cp. Anil Malhotra, Administrator of the institution. Presenting the plan through multi-media, Captain Malhotra said, "It is all the more essential to be prepared for emergencies in special schools, at least in the case of fire and natural calamities, through a shared plan and floor-wise responsibilities of marshals and deputy marshals to fast and safe evacuation of the school plant without any damage to differently abled children."

 It is desirable that in-house awareness raising about the needs and safety of special children was much more important rather than external events for raising awareness for autistic children among the society.

Other ways of spreading the awareness is to raise concern about the emergent challenges in the areas of the care and education of the children with autism through articles and write-ups. The city-based researcher and citizen journalist Dr. Lalit kishore wrote a few articles for Merinews and Slideshare to project the emerging perspectives and prospects related to the quality services to the children with special needs.

With now so many national and interventional observances along with religious and cultural festival, the events are becoming facile and ritualistic to create myths and misconceptions leading to diversion from the core issues and concerns.
