Press Trust of India  |  Jaipur 

A number of specially-abled persons today walked down the ramp today, as they participated in a fashion show exclusively organised for them in the state capital.

The special models took to the stage to participate in the four-round fashion show based on their categories -- with calipers, wheelchairs, crutches and artificial limbs and each round had 10 participants walking down the ramp.

Every specially-abled model was accomapnied by an able co-model on the ramp, the organisers of the event said.

Actress and Bharatnatyam performer Sudha Chandran remained present to cheer the participants in the event organised by the Udaipur-based Narayan Seva Sansthan, which works for specially-abled and underprivileged individuals.

"Someone with a disability should not be ignored. I am inspired and touched by the performance of the participants in the show," Chandran, who had lost a leg in an accident, said.

Prashant Agarwal, President of the Narayan Seva Sansthan, said the journey for the participants from learning skills on sewing machine to apparel designing and further showcasing their designs with full confidence on the ramp has not been easy.

"This could happen due to their courage and confidence," he said.
