AccesssAbility India on TV: Starting Up

| 0 Comments

I run this with gratitude to the work of my friend Shivani Gupta and in tribute to her recently deceased husband, and my friend, Vikas Sharma.

As you may imagine the death of Vikas is a loss for the entire Indian community of persons with disabilities. It is also an event requiring courageous reassessment by Shivani and their organization AccessAbility. I urge those with the means and the disposition to engage with Shivani and AccessAbility to assure their financial wellbeing so that they might continue to exert leadership in India and beyond.
