Sometimes your day of birth is just not your day. It's a pretty cruel joke, but you don't win arguments with Him. And so, you pick up the pieces and get along, and try to be on His right side so He takes you from worst to just bad. For these youngsters of the Indian Society for the Rehabilitation of the Handicapped, this is going to be one of the few days that they too are in the limelight, and that due to themselves. This is one of the bad days, and not the worst. This is perhaps as good as He gets when your day of birth was just not your day.

Today will see a dance drama "Devi", produced by the Mumbai-based Indian Society for the Rehabilitation of the Handicapped (ISRH), and being organized here by the Thakur Hariprasad Institute, performed by physically challenged teenagers. The production includes classical dance and has 24 artistes, six of whom are mentally handicapped and the rest subject to hearing, visual and physical disorders.

ISRH has been organizing such "wealth of talent" cultural programs and competitions for the disabled since 1978, and it was the skill and talent on display there that encouraged them to launch a professional dance drama. Their first production, "Krishna", was performed in 1985, and since then they have performed five other dance dramas and have had over 200 shows in all parts of the country. They have also performed at the Lincoln Center in New York.

These organizations' main aim is to show that these physically challenged children can excel in anything, if trained properly.
