An article from the new Indian Express

''In their flowing white clothes and headgears, the 16 dancers moved in perfect circles, on their wheelchairs, to the Sufi Kalaam at the recent International Anjali Children’s Festival in Bhubaneswar. And the audience was left awestruck by the feat of these dancers of Ability Unlimited—India’s first dance-theatre troupe for the disabled. With their amazing control over the wheelchairs, their performance—Sufi on Wheels—was an instant hit. Not surprisingly, the troupe enjoys places of pride in both the Guinness Book of World Records and the Limca Book of Records, being the only group in the world to perform Sufi dance on the wheelchairs.''


A must read article by everyone to know the unlimited power of people with disabilities. If you want you can do wonders says  Dancer- choreographer guru Syed Salauddin Pasha. Born into a Muslim family, Pasha was inclined towards Sanskrit shlokas and the philosophy behind the dance forms.

He says,'People with disabilities do not need anybody's mercy, but an opportunity.''
