Patna: Bihar Governor Debananda Konwar in Patna on Sunday flagged off a car rally for the blinds to encourage visually-impaired children and youths to not be deterred by their physical handicaps.
The rally was organized by the National Association for the Blinds, Bihar chapter.
Speaking on the occasion, Konwar said that serving the humanity was the best religion and everyone should be guided by this principle.
"Today, more and more people are concerned about their own welfare while ignoring the needs of others. If people also cared about their fellow human beings, the world would be a much better place to live," the Governor said.
Konwar also praised the National Association for the Blinds for organizing the event saying such programs work as huge motivator for people with disabilities.
With forty cars taking part in the program, the rally left the Raj Bhawan and after passing through various streets, ended up at the NCC field in Rajendra Nagar.
National Association for Blinds, Bihar chapter general secretary Lily Gupta and a number of NCC volunteers from Bihar and Jharkhand were also present on the occasion.
