Ajay Devgn has been the chief guest at many events. But this one is close to his heart.
Hitesh Harisinghani/Rediff.com reports.
There were giggles. Also dollops of seriousness. And determination.
Over 1,000 students ignored an unseasonably hot December day as they gathered near the Jamnabhai Narsee School in Juhu, northwest Mumbai, for the 19th annual sports meet -- the first edition was held in 2002 -- for differently abled students.
This year, the meet hosted participants from over 54 schools.
Watching the children show off their skills were Chief Guest Ajay Devgn, the dedicated teachers who have devoted their lives to these children and their equally dedicated parents.

And acknowledges it with a namaste. Standing next to him is Sujay Thacker, a trustee of the Narsee Monjee Educational Trust that runs the school.
Who can resist that smile as the march past begins?!
Students from The Victoria Memorial School For The Blind travelled from Tardeo, central Mumbai, for the event.
Check out their amazing skills at the malkhamb.
