The United Nations has officially declared the 2nd of April as World Autism Awareness Day!!! To help increase awareness and as a tribute to those suffering from Autism, SOPAN ( an NGO that has been dedicated to helping such children since the past 10 years ) along with DANCE DYNAMIX ( a newly born dance company specialized in teaching dance forms like jazz, contemporary, hip hop, bollywood and more.. ) put their best foot forward and did a flash mob at Mumbai Central station, lightening up the environment and raising the spirits of the on looking travellers.

For those who are not aware about Autism here is a small write up that would educate you on what these kids suffer from -

Autism is not a disease. It is a lifelong condition due to a brain disorder. The term autism is often used to refer to a spectrum of disorders. In this spectrum some people are more severely affected than others. But they all share some common symptoms. Autism can occur among people of any race, community and socio-economic group. However it is found to be four times more common in boys than in girls. Children with Autism may develop like other children till they are about 30 months old. Unlike others, children with Autism experience problems in expressing themselves
and understanding the feelings of people. They may not be interested in playing and developing friendships with other children. They prefer to be alone or by themselves. They seem to have limited interests, stereotypical behaviours and repetitive activities. Children with autism must receive intervention and training as early as possible. With suitable intervention such individuals not only improve but have a good chance to become self-supporting adults.
