Independence Day 2011 at Sewa Kutir #PhotoNama

Posted on August 18, 2011 in PhotoNama

Incessant rain at many places dampened the spirit of Independence Day celebrations this year. Most people chose to stay indoors  and spend the day as ‘just-another-holiday-to-rest’. But the students of Sewa Kutir, Hostel for College Going Blind Students, Kingsway Camp, Delhi were very enthusiastic. These students are born blind, they do not have any color in their lives but their spirit is high. Our intern Jyoti Rathore shares photographs of Independence Day celebration at Sewa Kutir.
