Gomvira Pala Description

This folk song helps to convey basic information about the Persons with Disabilities Rights and Protection Act, 2013 in the traditional format of a “gomvira pala,” featuring a didactic, intergenerational dialogue between a grandfather and grandson. You can use this song not only to convey information about the Act in an entertaining and engaging way, especially for training and awareness-raising participants who may have difficulty accessing printed materials, but also to demonstrate how participants might educate members of their own families in an approachable and colloquial way when they return home after your event.
