44 visually impaired girls catwalk for a cause

November 12, 2016 10:00 IST

These girls are proof that disability is just another word.

Recently, 44 visually impaired girls walked the ramp in Juhu, Mumbai to power an awe-inspiring cause.

The aim of the show -- Princess India Show 2016 -- was to show the world that being blind does not make you weak or any less powerful than the rest of the girls.

Organised by the National Association of the Blind India Centre, the show was judged by a celebrity panel featuring director Satish Kaushik, actor-dancer Lauren Gottlieb and actor Romit Raj.

Take a look at some photos from the show.
