“ What I liked throughout the course was you made us “hear” many times…you don’t need your eyes for hearing.When we closed our eyes, I personally felt so relieved…”

“ Glass Cobra…I never thought we will be back in the circle again.Before finding my partner I was eager to open my eyes but once I found her I was relaxed and felt happy.”Shruthi

“ I personally had very bad experiences travelling by public bus but never spoke out …I used to just walk away and ignore such things. But in this forum I got a chance to experiment the various strategies which I could have done…It was amazing to see so many girls coming out with different ideas.” Deepika

“ when I entered the class the first day I was a different person like not speaking much, more shy, but today … I am totally changed…I really wanted to be like this.”  “ the day when we played …Big Wind Blows… for the first time I was so freely running everywhere, speaking and laughing with everybody.” Poornima
