All India Radio Shows




Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh was our 15-minute weekly radio show in Hindi about the news and views on Cross-Disability (all kinds of disabilities) issues. The aim is to advocate the rights of people with disabilities and to inspire, motivate and allow attitudinal changes to come about both in the mindsets of the disabled and non-disabled population of our country.


We interview organizations, institutes and individuals with and without disabilities working in the disability sector. The show aims at building bridges between people with and without disabilities and breaking down the prevalent mental and physical barriers, exposing the unique gifts and talents of people with disabilities, thereby heightening the self-esteem of persons with disabilities while making them aware of their rights.


Through the radio show MMKND we were able to:

  • Provide role models to persons with disabilities.
  • Bring about changes in the attitudes and mindsets of non-disabled persons which would hopefully lead to greater inclusion of persons with disabilities in the mainstream of living and allow them to be true contributing citizens of the nation.
  • Urge people to commit to bringing about this change.
  • Promote awareness, educate and inspire.
