101 Couples’ mass-wedding

A rarely scenario had happened recently in the Janmashtami Park of Punjabi Bagh, West Delhi. On 31st January 2016, a mass-wedding of 101 couples happened there including nearly 60 were specially-abled. Narayan Seva Sansthan, an NGO that runs one of the largest charitable hospitals in the country for polio-affected
patients, has played a cupid for these couples.

Its head, Prashant Aggarwal informed that they registered the eligible bachelors with any sort of disability for wedlock. They also try to make a platform for their meeting in the hospital before making any choice for partners.

Raja Ram, a polio victim from Bhilwara of Rajasthan has married Meera, non-disabled. It is being considered as a remarkable step in a country like India where a specially-challenged is not even getting a proper basic facilities and the organization is doing such a humane work.

Even, the Indian Spinal Injuries Centre has started treating the sexual and reproductive health issues of spinal injured people. They also have the sexual desires like any other human. But people do not even think about their dreams and their aspiration for having family.
