  1. Special Olympics should be given every priority in a country such as India where we have hundreds of thousands of children, boys and girls, with excellent hidden talents yet to be tapped. Special Olympics bring special feelings in young children who can display their own talents in sports and recreations and show to the world that they too have something to offer to the World of Sports. This is a worth move for India where we have millions of children rising up each year, while many of them have certain disabilities that need be totally ignored and those children should get larger momentum for further success. India has been gifted with millions of rich and famous who will willingly come forward in helping the Special Olympic events that will transform special feelings amongst the rich as well as poor – young and the old. We have our whole hearted support. Best of luck and God bless
