This Independence Day, we are turning 70 and there couldnt have been a better gift to the nation than our National Anthem being launched in sign language.
Union Minister of State, has happily launched a new video of the National Anthem in sign language that features Amitabh Bachchan along with physically challenged children, with the backdrop of the Red Fort.
The government has addressed the physically challenged as “divyang” and not “viklang” in order to avoid any sort of distinction.
This is a proud moment for us that the National Anthem has been produced in sign language for those who depend on it. We used to refer to people falling in the category as disabled (viklang), but now the government has modified the definition to divyang,”, said the Minister of State for Human Resource Development
