Parents should encourage their specially-abled children and mould them to achieve excellence in their respective fields. Officials should work sincerely and provide benefits to the specially-abled. Differently-abled children require moral support more than sympathy for their disability. Many specially-abled children and adults have shown the world that they are not less efficient than a normal person, he said.

Achievers in Education and Sports, Wilma Pereira, Anil Kamath, Deekshith, Harsha, Pallavi, Ranjitha and Chandana, were felicitated on the occasion. Prizes were distributed to the winners.
