First Heritage Walk in Delhi for the Specially Challenged

Kasturi posted on 29th January

In every heritage spot in the city, you will notice a lack of ramps, hearing aids or even Braille {on the information boards etc}. This makes our city’s UNESCO World Heritage sites super inaccessible to the disabled population {including Humayun's Tomb, Qutub Minar and Red Fort}. Often, inclusive toilets are also not-so inclusive, or broken or dirty.

The organisation Planet Abled is brought about this change by getting 16 volunteers who are sign language experts, wheelchair assistants and disability trainers to escort 15-16 differently abled people from all over the country to explore Zamin’s Tombs, Jamali Kamali and more.

We are super pumped that this was the first ever accessible heritage tour at Qutub Minar and Mehrauli Archaeological Park. We hope that more such events pop up in the city, that make our communal heritage accessible to all.
