JAMMU, NOV 14: To mark Children Day celebration, a private radio channel on Tuesday hosted a special film show for visually challenged children here under the title ‘Kaano Dekhi Film Festival’
A film festival specially made for the visually challenged kids was organised by Radio Mirchi 98.3 where the students of The Blind School, Roop Nagar here were fascinated by the Akshay Kumar starrer Airlift.
The movie was exclusively designed by Saksham foundation.
Radio RJs Mirchi Shwetima, Mirchi Nishant and Mirchi Nikki hosted the shows from the studio and struck a chord with the adorable kids.
‘Kaano Dekhi Festival’ was a special initiative by the MirchiCares group, conducted throughout India for kids who have restricted vision that stops them from enjoying movies.
For the celebrations of Children’s Day, specially-abled kids from various NGOs were welcomed in the Radio Mirchi 98.3’s studios and a great interaction session with them helped cheer up the whole place. After the studio session, they were accompanied by our RJs to the restaurant where a lunch was awaiting them.
Sehyog Trust and Serving Humanity NGO joined hands to contribute to the food and transportation requirements respectively. Heritage-Strings also performed in front of the students singing their much loved numbers. The event was also attended by Pradeep Dutta who is a Senior News Editor at Times Now, and also an exceptional poet. His poem in the interval overwhelmed the kids.
