Connecting Signs – The Ripples of Success

Connecting Signs – The Ripples of Success

Disabilities go beyond race, culture, age, gender and religion. As a society, we have always had the tendency to box people under different labels, and “categories”. But what we don’t realise is that humanity transcends beyond these stereotypes. Humans are beautiful and capable in every way, and they have a lot to offer the world; more than we can ever fathom.

Connecting Signs, an initiative by The Ponty Chadha Foundation, has not just educated the masses about sign language and its importance, but has also made people realise that specially-abled children, despite their disabilities, have endless amounts of talents and skills that can shape the world in a wonderful and meaningful way.

Over the last two months, the children of MBCN have left no stone unturned in making the Connecting Signs campaign a successful one. They went to several institutions and local eateries to share some knowledge on sign language, and taught different gestures and words, all of which were truly enlightening.

What really topped it all, however, was the Indian national anthem in sign language, which garnered 2,144,759 views on Facebook, besides reaching 9,664,507 viewers. To add to these fantastic figures, the 25,000+ shares really got the ball rolling in the right direction for the overall purpose of this campaign. In a nutshell, many hearts were touched on virtual as well as off-line platforms.

It has only been a couple of months, but the Connecting Signs campaign, has created countless ripples of change in our society. People have walked away with a sense of pride and wonder on seeing these special children, and their sheer positivity that outshines the disabilities they may have had.

MBCN HI Students Connect All With Indian National Anthem In Sign Language

MBCN HI Students Connect All With Indian National Anthem In Sign Language

How many of you truly know the meaning of the Indian national anthem? We may sing it, hear it, or hum it, but do we know the real essence of the words? Sometimes, a lot is lost in translation, and a lot more goes missing for those who can’t hear or speak.

The children from MBCN recently showcased Jan Gan Man (the Indian national anthem) in sign language, and taught us a great deal about the beautiful song. The different meanings of the words were brought to life, and the zeal and pride on their faces made it a delightful experience for one and all. More importantly, it made us understand that knowing sign language is crucial when it comes to understanding the needs of those who can’t hear or speak.

Connecting Signs is reaching out to all types of people who come from different walks of life. It is an endeavor to reverse the norm and encourage inclusiveness on all levels, and of all types of people. As a society, we love learning new languages and exploring different cultures. It is however pivotal that we understand sign language and understand the culture of humanity in order to help those who need us the most.

With International Week of the Deaf just around the corner, let us all come together and celebrate the language that can connect us all and unite us for Love, Harmony and Humanity.
