Community organizations

Korok’s condition then to have to explore facilities that would support his growth at a time when options were few, left his parents feeling isolated themselves. Receiving no support from the family and neighbors plunged them to near suicidal thoughts. The journey for Korok’s parents was tumultuous and unbearable at times, when they heard their son and only child being called ‘handicapped’ or ‘unwanted’ or them being labeled as ‘Cursed’. The tough challenges, however, compelled them to choose a positive path of development and joy. He slowly bloomed up by the passionate nourishment, affections & love of his School Noble Mission of South Calcutta at Mukundapur- Kolkata, his beloved Dance Teachers, a moral support from entire CCRT team, which inspires him to expose his fragrance and ability to the entire society, targeted to be a main-stream Dance.

Attitudes

Receiving no support from the family and neighbors, parents of Korok, plunged them to near suicidal thoughts. The journey for Korok’s parents was tumultuous and unbearable at times, when they heard their son and only child being called ‘handicapped’ or ‘unwanted’ or them being labeled as ‘Cursed’. The tough challenges, however, compelled them to choose a positive path of development and joy. His education began through a mainstream school that did not accept him and a few more schools that followed with the same outcome. An integrated School was approached, but that too fell weak in fulfilling the true essence of the word. Throughout his 5 years there, his mother, who is an Electronics & Telecommunication Engineer and sacrificed her profession, attended the school every day as his shadow teacher, as the others could not manage him. Korok continued to be aggressive in his behavior while his teachers concentrated more on the ‘mainstream’ children who would show better and faster Result.

Other livelihood generating support

Realizing his inclination to the art of Dance & Music, his parents took this up as a challenge to support him in receiving the formal Trainings in various Dance Forms, which in turn helped him in achieving the main life time accolades
