โ€œI would like to thank all the inclusive schools who have worked with me to teach differently abled children a new art in the form of Indian dancing and interactive workshops. We educated students on cultural activities including dancing, music, henna and rangoli,โ€ said Chiragi in a statement.

โ€œOur workshops have provided students with a wide array of skills that can be applied to other aspects of their lives and given opportunities to overcome fears and perform in front of large audiences with confidence. A small group of these students have already achieved independence through being able to work alongside me to teach in other schools. Again, a big thank you to everyone involved in this project! Specially Shaheen Akhtar.โ€
