These Divya Heroes are truly an inspiration for every community and have enhanced their chances of them being more acceptable in all walks of life. Narayan Seva Sansthan has changed the perception of the common man today and one must appreciate their efforts for offering a vibrant platform like this for such individuals.”
Divya Hero and talented performer, Bajrang Nehra said, “The journey so far has been great. Equality in all walks of life through an effort and a platform so large to showcase our talent not only allows us to be accepted in the society but has also offers us a way to change the social fabric through our potential. Narayan Seva Sansthan is definitely ray of hope for individuals like us who have now been truly accepted and treated equally like the rest.”
