Khul Jaa Sim Sim Mantras

The Lockdown has opened in many states, yet the fear of the third wave keeps us and our self-advocates inside. After the hugely successful mantras that was devised by Rekha Maa, our parents wanted us to continue the trend. So it was decided to open the gates for our Self-advocates for them to perform and send us a video. Thus was born Khul Jaa Sim Sim – opening a land of opportunities for them to display their talents.

And they as usual bloomed when they got these challenges too. Rock on Self-advocates!
