Mentally-challenged women celebrate Diwali

In a bid to spread smiles on Diwali, a shelter home for mentally-challenged women in Bhubaneswar organised a cultural programme. Happy inmates of Mission Ashra {Shelter} clapped and danced along with the performing artistes at the event. Director of the mission, Govinda Patnaik, says that: “Since last 12 years we are organising almost all festivals like Holi, Diwali, Eid and Christmas because it’s a process to recall their past memories which can help them to early recovery in their mental condition.” The venue was drenched in the light of scores of earthern lamps. The 220 inmates made ‘rangolis’ and lit sparklers, making sure that no one missed their families.
