Major Projects worked on:

Project parasports is an online initiative that talks about the untold stories of our unsung heroes who are differently abled and have represented India internationally or are preparing to represent it. The webiste talks about their aspirations, struggles, rehearsals and a lot more. It is build to give viewer an indepth knowledge about parasports and how people have brought laurels to the country and are yet unknwon to the majority of us. The portal also talks about the minimal media attention the para sports players get. We don’t have to go far. We can question ourselves. How many of us know athletes who just participated in Olympics and how many of us know Devendra Jhajhariya or Rakesh Kumar, who have won Golds in parasports, in Paralympics and internationally. The project aims at talking about the discrimination the para players deal with by the Government, the media and US, as a soceity.

Parasports Project is also campaigning for a para player who has every qualification and passion to race but lacks money to buy his wheelchair. Hence, we are campaigning for him to get whatever help he could through crowd source funding. Project parasports also works to avail coaches and sponsorships to our para players and help them in any possible.

Did you know that Indian Cricket Team (Blind) won the 2017 Cricket World Cup against Paikistan?
Did you know there were 2 Olympic medals but 4 Paralympic medals in 2016 secured by India?
Well, this trailer of our upcoming project ‘Project Parasports’ gives you a sneak peak of what it is to be a para player and how proud one feels bringing laurels to the country they belong.

Aother important thing that we’re trying to talk about is “Sports for the love of the game, not just for winning’

Mostly, every sport is somehow linked to winning and opportunities and fame. We want to link sports with nothing but love and passion for the game. And these two-Kashmiri men we met in Jaipur Para Nationals will tell you about their own love for wheelchair basketball.
