Last year, we had organized a fashion show for the senior citizens and this year, we thought of organizing it for the blind and the specially abled children. We had given them dress code of Khadi and traditional dress for the fashion show. The children were well trained and they have performed well. This is a heart touching event because the participants have performed very well and have mesmerised the audience with their tremendous walk and pose.”
