Along with the rest of the world, Numaligarh Refinery Ltd. (NRL) today organized “”Helping Hand”, an event to commemorate world disabled day at Golaghat district library auditorium. Dipak Chakravarty, MD of NRL, on his inaugural speech said, that the mentally and physically disabled people are an integral part of our society and we should never neglect and treat them as inferior. It is the moral responsibility of the society to create such an ambient that where the disabled persons can also partake at social, political and cultural field. Because we never know when some great scientist like Stephen Hawkings or a sprinter like Oscar Pistorius or a dancer like Sudha Chandran may emerge from among them. While Speaking to Assamtimes, Pranab Kr.
