Daughter Vinati's old school, SPJ Sadhana School for handicapped children, held a fashion show in March this year and had invited me to cover the event. Famous designer-artist Hemant Trivedi worked with the mentally challenged children and created a spectacular show - third such show in recent years. The Arts dept. children worked on fabrics with painting, embroidery, embellishments. The fabrics were used to make dresses for the top models of the city who walked the ramp that day. It was not just models, in certain segments children from the school also accompanied the models. They were greeted with thunderous applause, not because they were 'special' children but because they deserved it - for their creativity & for walking the ramp so professionally.
This was shot just before the show started and flash was not used to maintain the mood.
