The highest form of humaneness is compassion – with emphasis on the fact that meaning of compassion is understood correctly. Compassion, where respect is integral aside of empathy or sympathy.

This Independence Day, August 15, 2013 Gemstoneuniverse had the good fortune to be a part of celebrations at the WARDS school, Bangalore.  WARDS or Welfare Association for Rehabilitation of Disabled and Society – is a non profit organisation that promotes understanding, acceptance and full community inclusion for persons with disabilities. WARDS is the brain child of Mr. C.M.Kathavarayan, the principal of the school, who himself is visually impaired but far outdoes people, with the vision he has for individuals with disabilities.

Gemstoneuniverse was a co-sponsor of the celebrations and also presented need based materials and special teaching aids to the school.

It was immensely inspiring and humbling at the same time to see the happiness that dwells at this special needs school. And the readiness and enthusiasm with which amazingly synchronised dance and music pieces were presented by the school children. Here are a few glimpses from the event.

    Excellent initiative, great pictures. Keep up the good work!

  2.    They were disabled, mentally and physically challenged. But they were and they are honest in what they did. I was stunned to see there dedication towards the nation and they all left me with a smile. They played the game with no cheat and no betrayal feel. They just played for the enjoyment.

    Thank You Gemstoneuniverse for making me realize how blessed we are and what we have.
